Consider mechanical properties, including tensile strength, yield strength, impact strength, hardness, and elongation
Picking the right metal also means understanding its physical properties, like its conductivity or behavior under extreme stress or heat
It’s also important to examine the composition of different alloys, taking into account common uses for the primary element of each
After narrowing down your list of die cast alloys or needed properties.
High strength and exceptional hardness make zinc the ideal alternative to machined, pressed, stamped and fabricated components.
Light weight and able to withstand the highest operating temperatures of all die cast alloys. Our proprietary Thin Wall Aluminum Technology has made it possible to build smaller and lighter products at lower component costs.
Strong, rigid, fully recyclable yet incredibly light with superior EMI/RFI shielding properties. Magnesium is the ideal die cast material for applications where weight saving is a priority.
