# Rolled Special High Grade Zinc (Z13004)

Z13004 zinc is an otherwise-unclassified alloy of zinc. Cited properties are appropriate for the as-fabricated (no temper or treatment) condition. It has a moderately low heat capacity and the lowest tensile strength among zinc alloys. The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare Z13004 zinc to other zinc alloys (top) and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.
