Eastern Alloys has a vast library of technical data for zinc die casting alloys. Although it is difficult to make everything available, we have made an effort to provide the most commonly requested information. Please contact Ryan Winter for information not found in this website.
This article clearly shows the effect that strain rate and temperature have on the tensile properties of Zamak 3 die castings. SOURCE: International Lead Zinc Research Organization (ILZRO)
This article gives the results of comprehensive testing on Zinc alloys covering Tensile, Yield, Modulus, Compression, Impact (IZOD), Fatigue, and Thermal Expansion of common Zinc Die Casting alloys at a temperature range from -40 C to 135 C. There is also an "apples to apples" comparison of impact strengths of Zinc alloys with Plastic utilizing the same ASTM D256 testing method used in the plastics industry.
