Transmet Corporation says its ZA4 Cast Zinc Shot provides a bright finish without causing delamination or ferrous contamination. The product cleans metal parts without damaging the details or raised identification numbers. Transmet says that, when compared to steel media, the considerable difference in zinc’s durability and similar bulk density without damaging the equipment or substrate make it a more desirable alternative for doing blasting work on aluminum, zinc or magnesium parts.

ZA4 can be used in any blasting equipment where the media is captured and reused, such as blasting cabinets, inline blasting machines, spin blasters, blast rooms and tumble blasters. The company says it also works well in centrifugal wheel blast, suction air and pressure blast applications. Visit transmet.com.

    Immersion tin and lead-free hot air solder leveling (HASL) coatings based on SnCu or SnAgCu alloys are widely used as surface finish materials for printed circuit boards (PCB). These coatings prevent the underlying copper from corrosion and preserve its solderability during lead-free assembly processes and for a long storage life of PCBs.
