Thousands of alloy compositions have been investigated for use in automotive and other commercial applications. Zinc, aluminum and magnesium die casting alloys have similar strength properties Data are presented on tensile strengths, and thermal and electrical properties Material cost comparisons are made for an average die casting and an average unfilled molded plastic. Processing and finishing methods for pressure die castings are described.
