ZA-12 Alloy Casting
ZA-12 Zinc-Aluminum Alloy
ZA-12 is a first choice when considering zinc-aluminum alloys—an outstanding alternate to cast iron, bronze, and aluminum. ZA-12 provides excellent gravity casting capabilities, particularly for sand and permanent mold processes. Strong, consistent, and hard: ZA-12 has metal properties ideal for good bearing properties. Learn more about what helps ZA-12 qualify as a first choice.
Communications equipment, computers, electrical gadgets, industrial machinery, scientific equipment, instruments, and control devices use zinc-aluminum alloy ZA-12. In addition, ZA-12 is non-sparking and used for mine, marine, and other potentially hazardous locations and severe environments.
ZA-12 is a versatile zinc alloy combining high-performance properties and ease of fabrication. Die-cast ZA-12 often competes with ZA-27 for strength application.
