Zamak 3 / Zinc Alloy 3 / ZL 3 / ZL0400 / ZnAl4 (EN1774 Standard Ingot)
Zamak 3 is the de facto standard for the zamak series of zinc alloys; all other zinc alloys are compared to this. Zamak 3 has the base composition for the zamak alloys (96% zinc, 4% aluminium). It has excellent castability and long term dimensional stability.
Zamak 3 also offers excellent finishing characteristics for plating, painting and chromate treatments. It is the “standard” by which other zinc alloys are rated in terms of die casting
• Excellent balance of desirable physical and mechanical properties
• Superb castability and long-term dimensional stability
• Excellent finishing characteristics for plating, painting, and chromate treatments
• Excellent damping capacity and vibration attenuation in comparison to aluminum die cast alloys
