Zinc is a natural element found as a component of the earth’s crust. With deposits spread widely throughout the world, zinc ores are extracted in more than 50 countries. Added as a dietary supplement in vitamins, facial creams and sun blockers, zinc is an indispensable part of our daily lives. Zinc alloys stand out as one of the most sustainable manufacturing materials. Due to its low melting point, zinc requires less energy to produce castings, and virtually 100% of the metal can be recycled. Zinc is a greener option when compared to many other manufacturing materials.
