EZAC™ is Eastern Alloys' new high strength, creep resistant, hot chamber zinc based die casting alloy.
With excellent fluidity and a low casting temperature (780 - 825 F), EZAC™ is perfect for the hot chamber die casting process. In addition, because of EZAC™'s low melting temperature, it does not have the same casting difficulties (such as erosion and wear) that other similar high strength die casting alloys exhibit. Casting trials have shown neglibible component wear in EZAC™ compared to other high strength hot chamber zinc die casting alloys.
Improvements of EZAC™ over traditional zinc diecasting alloys include:

|High Temp Tensile Strength (ksi)||38.5||32||26.5|
|High Temp Yield Strength (ksi)||24||21||19|
|High Temp Strain (%)||4.5||7||14|
