Zamak 5 should be consider when moderately greater hardness strength and creep resistance is require over Zamak 3. Zamak 5 has the same composition as Zamak 3 with the additional of 1% copper in order to increase strength (by approximately 10%), hardness and corrosive resistance, but reduces ductility. Zamak 5, or Zinc alloy 5, is the most widely used Zinc die casting in Europe. It has higher strengh and less ductility than other members of the Zamak.

Electroplating Advantages: Using Different Coating Products to Provide Enhanced Benefits

You would be surprised just how many items in our lives have electroplating. From your car when driving to work to the jewelry worn on special occasions, commercial manufacturing processes rely on this process to protect metals, as well as plastics, by coating them with an exterior layer of metal. While the most well-known reason…

What is electroplating?

Electroplating refers to a process that adds a surface layer of metal to another type of metal. It’s typically used to prevent corrosion and rust and to extend the useful life of the metal underneath the electroplated metal. Of course, it’s also used to make gold and silver plated jewelry and knickknacks and to give…

Electroplating with Tin Anodes: Uses and Examples

Machinery used in manufacturing applications can consist of a range of metals and alloys that provide strength, electrical and thermal conductivity, durability, workability and other characteristics. However, the metal part itself could be detrimentally impacted by the environment and the working application itself. In other instances, the metal part could create problems if it comes…

Antimony: Possessing Durability and Versatility When Alloyed with Other Metals

Semiconductors, machine bearings, and utensils are all made from varying amounts of metal alloys. Yet these items also possess one common factor: antimony. Antimony is a semi-metal element that comes in both a powdered form as well as a hard and brittle metal. Possessing a silvery, blush white appearance, this element is highly desired when…
