How to choose the right type of Zamak for your injected part

There are several types of Zamak available for injection molding, each with unique characteristics that make it more suitable for certain applications. When choosing the right type of Zamak for your injection molded part, it is important to keep the following considerations in mind:

Hardness: Some types of Zamak are harder than others, making them more suitable for parts that require mechanical strength.

Thermal conductivity: If your part requires good thermal conductivity, it is important to choose a type of Zamak with a high coefficient of thermal conductivity.

Corrosion resistance: Some types of Zamak are more corrosion resistant than others, making them ideal for applications in wet or aggressive environments.

Cost: This is a factor to consider when choosing the right type of Zamak for your injection-molded part.

It is important to evaluate the needs of your injected part and compare the characteristics of the different types of Zamak to choose the one that best suits your requirements.
