How Does Deco Ensure Longer Tool Life?

Deco products ensures that tools will have a longer life. A typical zinc mold can last ten times longer than an aluminum mold. Zinc as a material is less abrasive and has a lower melting temperature. As a result, aluminum tooling wear is more dramatic. This lowers the tool life and prematurely affects part quality, as a worn tool will result in parts with increased flash and other defects. With longer tooling life, one will have a reduction in mold cost, but also part approval (PPAP) cost, thus using a zinc alloy could save you a significant amount of money, stress and time over the life cycle of your product.  

Zinc alloys are also 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. Zinc alloys have high strength and hardness. They are easiest for die casting and allow for a better-quality product. All of these items contribute to a longer tool life. We strive for the highest quality parts and have great attention to detail to exceed our customers’ expectations.
