Zinc Die Casting
Northwest Die Casting – A Leader in Zinc Die Casting
Zinc is the easiest alloy to cast and is commonly used in the automotive industry. It has high impact strength and is an economical casting option, due to the fact that a million or more parts can often be produced before new tooling is required. Zinc also has excellent physical and mechanical properties, as well as outstanding finishing characteristics. With the exception of brass, Zinc alloys have the highest impact strength of other die casting alloys.
