Engineered Zinc Solutions
ARTAZN™ has been manufacturing continuous casting zinc strip since the late 1800s and is the largest North American producer of solid zinc strip and zinc-based products. With our dedicated team with years of experience in the zinc strip industry, we can work with you to create an Engineered Zinc Solution to fit your needs.
We have a family of zinc strip alloys whose features are advantageous for many applications. We use 99.995% special high-grade zinc to prepare high-quality zinc strip using titanium, copper, magnesium, manganese and other metals as alloying agents to achieve a range of properties. If the application falls outside the scope of our current alloys, our expert product development team will work with you to create new solutions.

Our Process To Precision Production
Our manufacturing facility has one of the largest melting, casting, and rolling capacities in the world. Our extensive zinc strip plating and slitting capacities give our customers a variety of widths and plating finishes to choose that can help in meeting the ever-changing market demands. Depending on the zinc strip alloy, we roll the coil close to three-thousandth of an inch and will be able to slit depending on the customer requirement. We offer cut to length zinc sheets that are 27 inches (685.8 mm) wide and 215 inches (5461mm) long.
We adhere to high-quality standards for our products and processes. We are an ISO 9001:2015 certified company and strive to provide excellent products for our customers.
Zinc Strip Plating In A Variety Of Finishes
ARTAZN™ can also provide zinc strip with a variety of plating options such as:
- Bright Tin
- Most other common metals
These different plating options can provide additional advantages to zinc strip such as improved aesthetics and increased durability against extreme temperatures and humidity. ARTAZN™ also has the capability to plate small, stamped zinc parts such as coin blanks. To read more about our coin blank plating options, please visit the Coinage Products Page.
Our capability to produce quality zinc strip products has enabled us to meet the stringent standards of the automotive industry for more than three decades. Our plated zinc strip meets the requirements of this industry for precise conductivity to protect the vital circuits.
