We manufacture in Zamak, a material that can be recycled indefinitely without losing its purity or intrinsic qualities. After the manufacturing process, it is coated with an ecological paint and packed in recycled cardboard boxes.
Moulded zamak produces very low emissions into the air and water. Its energy consumption is also very low.
It disintegrates into seawater.
It is not produced from hydrocarbons, so it does not contribute any pollution.
Zinc or zamak is a part of nature’s cycle, and can be reused. The melting point of zinc is low compared to most other materials. Thus, the energy consumption when working with zinc in die casting is lower than with other materials.
Die-cast zinc or zamak meets the demand for creativity in the construction and design process. Several parts can be integrated into a common cast. The self-lubricating characteristics of the zinc alloy are used to avoid the use of lubricating bearings.
A large number of surface coating options are available in order to add the most attractive aesthetic and functional characteristics to the zinc parts.
In addition, injected zinc or zamak parts have high mechanical resistance, elasticity and impact ductility. Zinc castings are often a better choice than, for example, aluminium, plastic or milling parts.
Zinc castings can be optimised, and the weight is reduced considerably – without affecting strength and complexity.
Zinc or die-cast zamak can also absorb sound, giving us another added advantage by eliminating the low noise that wheels can make.
Ecological paints are much better than synthetic ones in several ways and their main advantage lies in their composition. While eco paints are made from natural products that are environmentally friendly, such as raw materials of vegetable and mineral origin, such as silicates, clay and lime, synthetic paints use powerful chemicals, such as mercury, cadmium or lead, and volatile organic compounds, such as acetone, that harm the environment.
Being composed of simple, natural raw materials based on biodegradable products, eco-paints do not generate environmentally toxic waste. Thus, these paints comply with a number of standards during their manufacture and packaging to achieve respect for nature and sustainability.
In addition to being environmentally friendly, the components of eco-paints are not harmful to human health, while synthetic paints are harmful to the skin, eyes and respiratory tract. In fact, there are people who suffer from sensitivity or allergies to synthetic paints and cannot stay in a place decorated with these paints or, of course, use them. It is also highly dangerous for pregnant women and children, as the latter can develop allergies or respiratory problems in the future.
Types of ecological paint
At present we can differentiate between two types of ecological paints according to the natural components used in their manufacture:
Natural paints: these paints can be of animal or vegetable origin, although the latter are better known, and fall within the group of eco-paints.
Mineral paints: these ecological paints can be made from silicate, lime, clay and chalk.
All babies and children are sensitive to toxic substances, so it is important to pay attention to the type of paint to be applied.
It is clear that the paint you have to bet on for your baby must be toxic-free and ecological. It must also be of good quality and approved.
