Zinc is one of the major non-ferrous metals required by industry. Its largest application is in the galvanizing of iron and steel products. A substantial tonnage is also used in the making of brass and in the form of alloys for pressure die-casting. Zinc can be fabricated by almost all of the processes used in metal forming: it can be rolled, extruded, drawn, spun and bent as well as cast. Wrought zinc and zinc alloys have the special anti-corrosion properties that are necessary for many types of service, e.g., in roofing and in sacrificial cathodic protection. [...]
