An Introduction to INTERZINC
INTERZINC is a market development and technology transfer group, dedicated to increasing awareness of zinc casting alloys among engineers, designers and specifiers. It aims to accomplish this mission through technology transfer, technical services and designer education programs.
People have been benefited from zinc die castings for over 50 years. Their broad range of excellent mechanical and physical properties, easy castability, and broad range of available finishes have established zinc as the fourth most commonly used metal in the world.
Today, designers can also benefit from the added performance of a whole new family of high performance zinc alloys, the "ZA" alloys. These alloys complement the traditional "Zamak" alloys and further expand the already wide range of applications in which zinc has been successfully used.
Casting technology is not a process frozen in time. Ongoing advancements in zinc casting technology greatly benefit those who select materials for industrial and consumer products. INTERZINC’s programs are structured to assist manufacturers in determining how zinc can be cost-effectively employed for a wide range of end uses.
Since its formation in 1986 by a few visionary zinc producers and alloyers, INTERZINC has participated in national and international exhibitions, presented technical sessions at these exhibitions and conducted its own technical seminars. Through these activities INTERZINC has provided potential end-users of zinc castings with the following services:
