Zinc diecastings tend to be smaller and more
intricate than Aluminium diecastings.
Zinc is able to be cast into thinner sections and with less draft angle
requirements. It's lower temperature and less aggressive nature results in a
far greater life expectancy for the tooling.
The material costs of zinc have risen over the last few
years, and it should be noted that is almost three times as heavy as
Aluminium. Hence for a given volume casting, the material cost is far
greater, out-weighing it's lower production costs for larger castings.
We started to produce Zinc diecastings at Kaye Presteigne
when we purchased Pressurecast.
