ZINC DIE CASTING

Versatility With Economy 

Zinc is a casting alloy that offers high precision with lower tooling cost for small parts. Zinc’s superior strength and hardness is an ideal alternative for machined, pressed, stamped, and fabricated components. Zinc is optimal for complex net shaped parts with thin walls while offering excellent electrical performance and shielding properties. It’s structural integrity and wear-resistance are optimal for creating multi-faceted, complex shapes. With a versatile range of physical, mechanical and finishing characteristics, the advantages of zinc die casting include:

  • Complex shapes with thin walls
  • Superior mechanical and physical properties
  • Excellent tensile strength and dimensional stability
  • RFI/EMI shielding capabilities
  • Long die life
  • Superior as-cast cosmetic finish

Zinc alloys are optimal for casting parts requiring intricate detail and close dimensional tolerances at high production rates.  For parts requiring hardness, high durability and cosmetic finishes, zinc die casting provides an economical solution while offering:

 

  • High strength and hardness
  • Excellent electrical conductivity
  • High thermal conductivity
  • Low raw material cost
  • High dimensional accuracy and stability
  • Excellent thin wall capability
  • Cold Form capabilities to ease joining
  • High quality finishing characteristics
  • Outstanding corrosion resistance
  • Full recyclability
