Since 1959, Experi-Metal has been a leading provider of high quality Kirksite Foundry (zinc alloy) tooling for the Automotive, Aerospace, and Defense industries. EMI operates a self-contained kirksite foundry (zinc alloy), with a maximum pouring capacity of 60,000 lbs. per casting. Kirksite is an easy to use casting alloy and it can be machined, ground, and polished into a nice smooth finish without difficulty.
When cavities are cast from Kirksite there is little machining required to the molding surfaces. The end result can be a satisfactory product at a relatively low cost. Another added benefit is the is the castings can be remelted and the kirksite used over again.
