Die Cast Aluminium Enclosures

Abtech ZAG Junction Boxes

The ZAG range of enclosures comprises of 19 different sizes of enclosures and is precision die cast in AL-Si 12 grade (LM24) aluminium alloy. This is considered to be the most suitable grade of aluminium for maximum corrosion resistance especially in salt laden atmospheres.

Additional optional protection methods such as alochrome, anodising and epoxy polyester painting coupled with the fitment of captive 316 grade stainless steel lid retaining screws further enhance the anti-corrosion properties of the enclosure. The wall thickness is sufficient to allow tapped entry holes to be machined into the walls or the base of the enclosure.
