Galvanic Cathodic Protection
Solid zinc strip from Jarden Zinc Products is excellent material for making automotive fuses. The zinc strip has the same electrical conductivity as 70/30 brass which makes it ideal for low volt and low amp current carrying applications. In addition, solid zinc strip can be used as a counterpoise grounding material to protect electrical transmission lines from power surges during lightning strikes. Zinc strip has good shielding properties against Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), Radio Frequency Interference (RFI), and electrical conductivity. Zinc’s high formability can be used to design and shape zinc strip into a variety of gauges to fit the shielding systems in electrical circuits. Another application for our alloys is its use in printed circuit board material. The alloys have the same thermal expansion coefficient as the popular printed circuit board material which eliminates solder joint failure at the connection point.
