Benefits of Zinc Products

Often you are faced with choices in terms of which materials you can select when designing your parts.  At times you may consider cast aluminum, cast brass/bronze or even plastic parts.  Admittedly, zinc may not be the right material for every project, but here are some considerations:

  • Although aluminum is lighter than zinc, zinc has a lower melting point allowing the manufacturing process to be much quicker, more energy efficient and yields lower production costs.  Zinc also allows for much greater precision and gives an end-product with considerably higher strength.
  • Brass and or bronze are much more costly than zinc.  In addition, they often require machining, adding to the cost, whereas zinc often can be die-cast into finished form or net shape. 
  • Compared to plastic, zinc will yield a product with much higher strength.  This allows zinc parts to both last longer and cope with rougher handling.  Also, zinc provides an effective screen for electromagnetic radiation and is also 100% recyclable, whereas plastic is neither.
