Zinc casting alloys are strong, durable and cost effective engineering materials. No other alloy system provides the combination of strength, toughness, rigidity, bearing performance and economical castability. Zinc’s mechanical properties compete with and often exceed those of cast aluminum, magnesium, bronze, plastics and most cast irons. These characteristics, together with their superior finishing capabilities and choice of casting processes make zinc alloys an unrivaled material choice for saving time and money.
