Zamak, Zamac or Zinc Die Casting Alloys

Zamak is a family of alloys with a base metal of zinc and alloying elements of aluminium, magnesium, and copper


Zamak goes by many different names based on standard and/or country. While Europe uses the EN 1774 standard, America uses the ASTM B240 standard.

Of course, there are zamak varieties in the market that do not comply with any standard. Some manufacturers set their own standards according to the feature of the part they produce.

Manufacturers exporting to underdeveloped countries or producing products that are not given much importance in such countries may also prefer non standard zamak varieties with higher lead, iron or cadmium ratio due to the prices.
