Zinc alloys are the easiest to cast. It has high impact strength and is very economical due to the fact thousands, in some cases millions, of identical zinc parts can be produced before new tooling is required. Zinc also has excellent physical, mechanical properties and finishing characteristics. With the exception of brass, Zinc has the highest impact strength of all die cast materials.
Some benefits of Zinc Die Castings
High Impact Strength
Economical for small parts
Promotes long die life
Easily Plated or Finished with minimal surface preparation
Produces multi-cavity, complex shapes within closer tolerances than many other production processes
