Die Cast

Aluminum Diecast

Aluminum die casting alloys are lightweight, offer good corrosion resistance, ease of casting, good mechanical properties and dimensional stability.

The lightweight of aluminum is ideal for keeping manufacturing costs down.  Aluminum castings are best used as-cast or with an anodize coating and/or powder-coating.  For nickel, chrome and gold plating, zinc castings are suggested.

Zinc base alloys are the easiest to die cast. Ductility is high and impact strength is excellent, making these alloys suitable for a wide range of products.

The flow properties of zinc alloys allow for thinner walls and longer tool life. Zinc castings are ideal for metal plating or polishing. The potential draw back to zinc alloys is the weight (approx. 2-1/2 times the weight of aluminum).

Although Lead is viewed as a dangerous metal it still has many uses. It is useful in batteries and chrome plating along with safety devices. The low melting point of lead makes it unique and the best choice for certain projects.
