The die casting process is a forming process in which molten metal is injected into the cavity of a steel die. The cavity is precision machined, with tight tolerances, into a block of heat resistant tool steel. Coupled with process control and the uniform shrinkage characteristics of zinc alloys, this process results in castings with exact precision.

This publication presents the main characteristics of the recently developed High Fluidity (HF) Alloy that is based on the traditional Zamak composition and the earlier developed copper-rich alloy marketed under the names of Superloy and GDSL.
This brochure describes the process of continuously galvanizing rebar and features its unique advantages including coating adhesion, corrosion resistance, ease of coating and cost savings.
This 12–page publication provides the performance results of a series of new surface finishes using best practice green technology that was tested in two categories – corrosion protection and aesthetic retention – and compares them to the results of an earlier study conducted with traditional surface finishes.
This brochure was created on behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy and the North American Die Casting Association to illustrate the properties of a new high fluidity zinc alloy.
