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.

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…
