Advantages of Zinc

Deco Products is the largest “stand alone” zinc die casting manufacturer in North America. We know the advantages of zinc and why it is the best material for projects. Zinc has better precision, lifetime tool life, high fluidity, and often can be lowest cost and best value! How does zinc stack up against other products? Find out more below!

  • Zinc Vs. Aluminum
    • Zinc has a lower melting point which makes it quicker to manufacture, more energy-efficient and has a lower production cost.
  • Zinc Vs. Plastic
    • Zinc has a higher strength and generally have a longer life and can handle more severe stresses and environments. Zinc doesn’t degrade when remelted so it is easily reclaimed and recycled.
  • Zinc Vs. Brass
    • Brass is expensive and often requires additional machining, while zinc can be die-cast in finished form.
  • Zinc Vs. Sheet Metal
    • Products made from sheet metal are often best suited for flat or simple geometries. Zinc can be cast in a “net shape” form with various thickness and 3 dimensional features rather than welding multiple sheet metal parts together. Zinc can be cast with precise details and thin walls and thus lower the final product weight.


Zinc is a superior material because of cost, efficiency, production, and more. Wondering what to use for you next project? Contact Deco Products to point you in the right direction!
