zinc

Mechanical properties of zinc

Our mechanical properties table will take you through tensile, yield, shear, fatique strengths, and much more.

Physical properties of zinc

Our table will show you the melting range in centigrade, density, coef. of thermal expansion, thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity of zinc.

Zinc alloy and Mazak diecastings

Zinc alloys are sometimes referred to as mazak and are strong and tough. Rarely beaten for mechanical properties by other cast materials such as aluminium, magnesium, brass and plastics, they perform well under conditions of high impact and impulse loading with excellent wear characteristics.
