Zinc Material for Die Casting (Available in China)

ZAMAK2 The strongest and hardest ZAMAK alloy.   Generally die cast, it is occasionally employed for gravity casting
ZAMAK3 The most used general purpose zinc die casting alloy, providing an excellent combination of strength, ductility and impact strength. It also provides excellent plating and finishing characteristics. 
ZA-8 Die Casting - Hot Chamber, provides improved performance characteristics over the ZAMAK alloys
ZA-12 Die Casting - Cold Chamber, Permanent mold 
ZA-27 Die Casting - Cold Chamber
ZA-35 Die Casting - Gravity Casting

See ASTM B86, B791, B240, B669
