Zinc Design: When is Zinc Best For My Design?

Deco Products has an experienced engineering team to collaborate with customers in their parts when they are considering zinc for their design. Our design engineers work diligently to determine if zinc is the best material for your design by getting to know the application this part will be in. Zinc is not always the appropriate choice for a part but can be the best choice in several cases. Zinc alloys allow for faster production times, closer tolerances, thinner wall sections, tougher in impact and more rigid, improved machinability and malleable, better bearing surface, easier finishing, longer tool life, and increased haptics. If the part is in an application exposed to high heat or potential galvanic corrosion, our design engineers are great resources to offer new material suggestions or design and application suggestions to avoid these issues. These advantages of zinc die casting allow us to provide innovative, lighter weight, longer lasting, and more cost-effective products in several key areas. These benefits often exceed those of cast aluminum, plastics, bronze, and more cast irons.

Deco Products has been a reliable “Made in USA” zinc die cast manufacturer since 1960. Deco Products provides exceptional service and quality products for a multitude of industries. A few services Deco provides are custom precision engineered zinc die casting, powder coating, assembly, CNC Machining, and DFM-Part Design.
