Zinc Material Advantages

The ability to create a casting from zinc is the first of many zinc material advantages we focus on at Deco Products.

Why is zinc a great alloy for your design? A zinc material advantage is zinc can create a lot of different features that cannot be done with other materials. When zinc is melted down it is extremely fluid compared to competing materials. This allows for parts to have a highly functional and unique design. Zinc’s precision in the die casting process allows for features such as ribs and grooves to be inserted into the mold design. The advantage of precision in the design process avoids additional machining of parts to complete products.

Plating and powder coating can be performed on zinc parts to give a highly appealing feel and look. Deco Products provides countless plating and powder coating options for parts.
