    ASTM B792

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers commercial zinc alloys in ingot form for remelting for the manufacture of castings from the alloys as specified and designated as shown in Table 1.

    1.2 Slush casting alloys are used primarily for the manufacture of lighting fixtures, lamp bases, and small statues.

    1.3 This specification covers two zinc alloys which are specified and designated as follows:

    UNSASTM
    Z34510Slush Casting Alloy A
    Z30500Slush Casting Alloy B
