Zinc Properties

Zinc has a number of properties, including:

  • Strength: As a metal, zinc is weak. It is not normally used for any load-bearing applications, but primarily as an anti-rust agent. However, zinc has a high impact strength as a die casting alloy.
  • Ductility: at around 212 to 300 or so degrees Fahrenheit, zinc becomes malleable. This allows for more complex fabrication.
  • Conductivity: zinc has strong electrochemical properties, which is why it performs well during the galvanizing process.

Zinc has a number of other applications depending on your needs. These include:

  • Sound barriers
  • Vibration dampers
  • Architectural sheeting
  • And more


Most commonly, zinc is used as an anti-corrosive and for galvanization. Galvanization is a process to prevent rusting. Galvanization is the process of using a protective zinc coating to steel or iron. Zinc galvanization is used for:

  • Fencing
  • Guard rails
  • Suspension bridges
  • Metal roof
  • Heat exchangers
  • And more
