Zinc is competing with plastic as a design material at a time when materials choice is highly important. Among zinc's valuable qualities are the following: strength, durability, appearance, resistance to the environment and extremes in temperatures, ease of painting, and preciseness of tolerances. The most recent development in the zinc field is thin wall casting. Such zinc die castings can save production and material costs and at the same time provide strength and ease of plating and finishing.
