Zinc alloys are alloys based on zinc and other elements. The alloy elements are aluminum, copper, magnesium, cadmium, lead, titanium and other low temperature zinc alloys. Zinc alloy has low melting point, good fluidity, easy welding, brazing and plastic processing. It is resistant to corrosion in the atmosphere, and waste materials are easy to recycle and remelting. But the creep strength is low and natural aging is easy to cause dimensional change. Prepared by melt method, die casting or press work. According to the manufacturing process can be divided into casting zinc alloy and deformed zinc alloy.

The main elements of zinc alloy of aluminum, copper and magnesium. The zinc alloy by processing can be divided into two types of deformation and casting zinc alloy. The fluidity of the alloy and zinc alloy has good corrosion resistance, suitable for die casting instrumentation, automotive parts such as shell.

The pressure casting zinc alloy, which has been used in the automotive industry since 1940, produced a surge in output. About 25% of the total zinc consumption was used to produce the alloy. The advanced and applicable technology is being adopted constantly and developing rapidly. Corresponding personnel are also increasing, included in the complete iron and steel network of excellence. The most commonly used alloy series is the Zn-Al-Cu-Mg system. Some impurities obviously affect the properties of die cast zinc alloys. Therefore, the contents of iron, lead, cadmium, tin and other impurities are very strict, and the upper limit is 0.005%, 0.004%, 0.003% and 0.02%, respectively. Therefore, zinc alloy with purity greater than 99.99% should be chosen as raw material. china Die casting parts on sales
