Both aluminium and zinc are ideally suitable base materials for sustainable products:
- Natural stocks of ores for both materials are plentiful.
- The materials can be recycled time and again with no loss of properties. Over the life cycle this reduces both the energy requirement for production and also that required to deal with the subsequent emissions and waste.
- With their “near net shape” design and accurate casting tolerances, hardly any materials are lost in further processing.
- All the alloys we use meet the standards of RoHS, REACH and ELV.
