Zinc is 100% recyclable. All byproducts of the casting process can be re-melted and cast again, unlike its plastic counterparts. We can even recycle painted and plated parts and recapture the zinc for reuse, making zinc a greener alternative. Check out our Environmental Impact Policy for more on Deco’s commitment to sustainability.
Less Fuel Cost, Smaller Carbon Footprint
Zinc melts at around 800 degrees Fahrenheit. However, aluminum requires 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. Aluminum casting requires extra heat, which requires more fuel in the production process. Therefore, zinc has a smaller carbon footprint than aluminum, making it a greener option.
