Zinc alloy

An alloy consisting of zinc as a base and other elements.

Commonly added alloy elements are aluminum, copper, magnesium, cadmium, lead, titanium and so on.


Zinc alloy low melting point, good fluidity, easy welding, brazing and plastic processing, corrosion resistance in the atmosphere, laminate easy recovery and remelting;


However, due to the low creep strength, it is easy to change the size due to natural aging. Preparation by melting, die casting or pressure machining.


The main added elements of zinc alloys are aluminum, copper and magnesium.


Zinc alloys can be divided into deformation and casting zinc alloys according to processing technology.


Cast zinc alloy has good fluidity and corrosion resistance, suitable for die casting instrument, automobile parts, etc.
