Zinc Die Castings

Zinc gets a bad rap.  People just don't realize how much Zinc they touch every day.  Zinc is most commonly used in aesthetic parts such as door handles, sink hardware, semi-horns,  belt buckles; the list goes on.  It's easier not to notice Zinc because it is commonly chrome plated, polished, colored bronze or painted.  The benefits of Zinc are as follows:


  • High strength and hardness
  • Heavy (~2x the weight of aluminum)
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Excellent as cast surface finish
  • Easily plated
  • Better castability when compared to Aluminum (allows for thinner walls and less draft)
  • Recyclable
