The high-performance material in
the die-casting industry

ZAMAK® is a high-performance zinc die-casting alloy that is used in various applications in the die-casting industry. The excellent casting properties and countless options for surface design enable the production of very complex die-casting parts.

The advantages of


Excellent casting properties
The ZAMAK® high-purity zinc alloys enable the production of thin-walled components and complex geometries due to excellent flow properties.
Versatile surface design
The option of coating with different materials and the free design of the surface make the surface design of ZAMAK® die castings particularly flexible.
Less rework
Compared to aluminium, ZAMAK® requires less rework due to the close contour of the design during the casting process.
The sustainable, recyclable ZAMAK® material – now even more ecological with reduced CO2 footprint.
