Zinc die casting mold
Zinc alloys are cost-effective and have excellent physical and mechanical properties, making them a great choice in the die casting mold. This alloy casting produces components and parts with various industrial applications like electronics. Zinc has superior impact strength and toughness compared to aluminum alloys, sand, and brass castings.
Hence, we produce our own first-class custom-design Zamak alloy die casting at a reasonable price. The die casting is durable, with high-quality finishing ranging from galvanizing to satin chrome.
What is a zinc alloy die casting mold?
Die casting is a precision casting that uses high pressure to melt metal into a complex mold. Zinc alloy die casting is where molten zinc is pressurized into a mold cavity. This process results in accurate products and includes all the necessary fine details.
Zinc die casting is among the most used die casting processes. Zinc alloys are highly ductile, making them an ideal choice in the die casting process. It can expand and take shape under pressure without breaking.

Zinc die casting alloys
The following are the common zinc die castings we use to deliver excellent results:
It’s often known as Kirksite. Among the other Zamak alloys, it’s the only one used in gravity casting and has the highest hardness and strength. It’s a good bearing material and can eliminate wear inserts in zinc castings.
It’s the most common choice in zinc die casting. This molten metal maintains a great balance of mechanical and physical qualities, long-term dimensional stability, and desirable casting.
This zinc die casting contains more copper content than Zamak 3, which makes it stronger. Also, it’s less ductile and readily finished, plated, and machined compared to the Zamak 3 die casting. It’s the most used zinc die casting in Europe.
It’s also known as zinc aluminum alloy. It has great plating and finishing qualities making it perfect for decorative use. ZA8 contains more aluminum in the alloy at 8.4%. Also, it’s the only ZA alloy that can be die cast.
Advantages of zinc die casting
Zinc alloys have incredible mechanical and physical properties that make them a perfect choice in alloy die castings. The following are some of them:
- Zinc die castings are more stable, with closer tolerances and stability, compared to plastic moldings.
- Zinc die cast parts have smoother or textured surfaces, thinner walls, and closer dimensional limits than sand or permanent mold casting.
- Zinc die casting molds are cheaper because the labor requirements are minimal, and the finishing costs are not usually high.
- Its superior quality makes it highly resistant to corrosion and an excellent choice for indoor and outdoor use.
- The zinc casting has high dimensional stability, making it stand out among other alloys.
- Zinc alloys have unique material properties, and you can use various surface treatments like powder coating and chrome plating.
Together with these benefits, our custom zinc die castings will serve you best.
