Zinc Alloys were developed specifically for pressure die casting using hot chamber casting, which is highly automated and the most popular and efficient die casting process. ZA Alloys (Zinc Aluminum Alloys) were developed initially for gravity casting using sand, permanent mold, plaster mold and graphite mold casting techniques. ZA alloys can be used in pressure die casting, but require a cold chamber casting method. Only ZA-8 can be hot chamber die cast.
