The Advantages of Zinc Die Casting

The advantages of zinc die casting can certainly help you with your next 设计. Choosing the right material and process for your 设计 is of utmost importance to you.  Your selection will impact the products that you provide to your customers and ultimately their satisfaction.  Selecting the wrong material or the wrong process could spell disaster for you!

With a variety of zinc alloys to choose from, combined with the casting process, zinc die casting is worth your consideration.  买滚球app’ is a global manufacturer with 6 decades of experience. We can assist you in evaluating the mechanical, physical and chemical properties of each alloy. Deco can also assist in choosing the process in which they are manufactured so that you get what you need to best serve your customers.

The advantages of zinc die casting alloys allows us to provide innovative, 更轻的重量, 更持久的, and more cost-effective products in several key areas.  These benefits often exceed those of cast aluminum, plastics, bronze, and most cast irons.




Tighter Tolerances, No Machining




Zinc alloys are stronger than other materials, such as plastics or aluminum. This means zinc castings may be produced with thinner walls and less material to optimize strength in ways other materials cannot. 例如, aluminum’s cost per pound may “appear” less, its castings may require more material and cost for the same strength.

Zinc alloys require lower melting temperatures, 高压注射, 有一个更高的循环速率.  循环速率为 150 - 200%高 than other competing materials, such as aluminum.  Where aluminum is ladled into a mold, we are able to inject zinc at much higher rates.   死cast zinc alloys solidify rapidly. This allows us to produce more parts in the same amount of time and pass along cost savings to our customers. 

Zinc alloys allow us to produce high quality parts with tighter tolerances than aluminum or plastic.  Zinc’s fluidity provides increased precision compared to other materials allowing 设计s that do not require additional expensive machining and/or additional operations. 

A great advantage of zinc die casting is the fact that a typical zinc mold, can last 10倍的时间 比一个铝模具.  Zinc, as a material is less abrasive and has a lower melting temperature.  作为一个结果, aluminum tooling wear is more dramatic lowering tool life and prematurely affecting part quality. 减少了工具 & PPAP成本, using a zinc alloy for your part could save you a significant amount of money over the life cycle of your product. 


Here at Deco we can supply you with almost any die cast zinc alloy.  Our engineering experts can help you with picking the right alloy for your application.  Depending on your requirements of strength, 表面光洁度, 设计 flexibility or if you just want a greener solution, we are ready to help you take your part to the next level.









Zinc alloys are tough and have high fluidity when the alloy is molten. This produces a precise and resilient casting with greater impact resistance and rigidity than its plastic and aluminum counterparts.

The surface of a zinc casting allows for great adhesion of almost any finish to its substrate. Powder coating and plating finishes can provide a decorative or functional requirement to your part.  These finishes provide great characteristics for visual aesthetics, corrosion resistance or increased durability. 

With excellent bearing and wear properties, the variety of zinc alloys allow surfaces to act as bushings for structures in motion.   除了, zinc can be formed to join materials and thus, eliminating the need for additional fasteners.   These zinc characteristics allow for better part 设计 than we could with other materials.

锌是 100%可回收利用. All byproducts of the casting process can be re-melted and cast again without degradation, unlike “regrind” of various plastic materials. Zinc has a melting point of about 800° F., however, aluminum requires 1200° F.  死casting aluminum requires extra heat, which requires more fuel in the 生产 process. Therefore, zinc has a smaller carbon footprint than aluminum, making it the greener option.
