Die Casting Metal Alloy Typical Material Properties

Download the Alloy Material Properties for Aluminum 380, Magnesium AZ91D and both Zamak # 3 and ZA8 for Zinc.

The first step in designing a die cast component is choosing the proper alloy.  CWM has compiled a table of Material Properties based on NADCA Standards for Al 380, Mg AZ91D, Zn No. 3 and ZA-8.  Click here to view the file.

CWM produces die castings in all of the most popular alloys: Aluminum, Magnesium and Zinc and can therefore provide an unbiased recommendation on the best alloy choice for your die cast project. Each alloy offers you a combination of specific performance and cost advantages which should be discussed prior to making a final alloy decision.
