A Zinc Aluminum & Zinc Die Casting Manufacturer

PHB works with zinc alloys to manufacture quality, high-pressure die castings. Zinc die castings are great for many applications, including:

  • Small kitchen appliances
  • Gauging applications
  • Thin-walled parts
  • Instrumentation

PHB’s highly trained metallurgists ensure that all alloys meet the specifications through continual chemical and physical analysis. In our zinc die casting division, we work with zinc (Zamak 3, 5, and 7) and Zinc-Aluminum (ZA-8, ZA-12, and ZA-27) to provide clients with parts that have high ductility, impact strength, and can be easily plated. Along with handling all aspects of the zinc die casting process, PHB will also manage customer finishing requirements to ensure parts meet specifications in both a timely and cost-effective manner. Our zinc surface finishing includes powder coating, wet paint, chromate, electroless nickel, and more.  

PHB’s 58 presses, ranging in size from 100 tons to 2,000 tons, allow Zinc die casting components to be manufactured in both hot and cold chambers (depending on the alloy). Our value-added services extend tool life, reduce cycle times and costs, and provide high quality die castings.
