Hinges and accessories for shower enclosures made from zink alloy
Zinc alloy is a material basically made of zinc, which has several advantages including the strength and versatility. TECHNOGLASS® therefore uses zinc alloy to manufacture its shower enclosures complements. Zinc alloy is harder than aluminum and magnesium alloys and approaches to brass alloys characteristics as well, being however much more economic. The special zinc alloy die-cast process makes the material compact and free of any porosity, and thus more resistant and particularly suited to obtain surfaces that are characterized by high quality aesthetic finishes. Zinc alloy also possesses a great usury resistance, both in lubricated employment conditions, in a normal atmospheric environment, as well as an excellent corrosion strenght. The resistance in harsh environments, such as salt spray, increases if products are coated from hard galvanic treatments (galvanizing, nickel plating, chrome plating). Zamak and generally zinc alloys are also environmentally friendly materials. The zinc alloy die-casting, in fact, produces negligible emission levels in air and in water. Manufacturing waste can be recycled and energy consumption is very low.
