Alloy 7: (ZAMAK 7, ZL7) Alloy 7 is a modification of No 3 with a lower magnesium content and tighter impurities specification. This results in improved casting fluidity, ductility and surface finish, making the alloy popular where the die caster is making thin walled components requiring a good surface finish.

Zinc-aluminium (ZA) alloys are alloys whose main constituents are zinc and aluminium. Other alloying elements include magnesium and copper . This type of alloy was originally developed for gravity casting .
In the past zinc die castings were a common method for creating industrial lower cost zinc alloy parts and products. However, over the years, the price of zinc has increased substantially, and with the increases, we have seen a reduction in the use of die cast zinc parts.
Zinc Alloys - NEY Metals & Alloys
Zinc is used to make many useful alloys. Brass, an alloy of Zinc that contains between 55% and 95% Copper, is among the best known alloys. The use of Brass dates back 2500 years and was widely used by the Romans and is commonly used today, particularly in musical instruments and many hardware applications that must resist corrosion.
