- No Annealing
Zinc strip requires no annealing during successive forming operations.
- Electrical Properties
Solid zinc strip alloys have good electrical properties with electrical conductivity equal to 70/30 brass.
- Chemical Properties
Solid zinc strip possesses unique chemical/electrical properties that enable it to function in galvanic cathodic protection and battery anode configurations.
- Joining and Soldering
Solid zinc strip is easily soldered to itself and other materials. It can be readily joined as well by resistance welding and other assembly methods.
- Corrosion Resistant
Solid zinc strip is resistant to weather and atmospheric corrosion. Exposure to the atmosphere causes the formation of a zinc carbonate film that provides long-term protection.
Being one of the most versatile non-ferrous metals available, solid zinc strip can be plated, painted, lacquered, powder coated, or base coat/clear coat with excellent adhesion and durability.
- Shielding Properties
Solid zinc strip is an effective EMI/RFI shield.
Solid zinc strip is non-magnetic.
Solid zinc strip is non- sparking, making it the ideal choice for parts utilized in hazardous environments.
- Environmentally Safe
An environmentally safe material, zinc is an essential element of life naturally existing in the earth and in all living things.
Solid zinc strip is an economical alternative to other metals such as copper and brass. It will produce more pieces per kilogram unit of weight due to the weight density of zinc when compared to other metals.
Solid zinc strip is 100% recyclable. We recycle zinc scrap produced throughout our various processes.
