Die cast metal is a toy or model that is manufactured using the die casting method, which means that through the process of melting metal then poured to be printed in accordance with the desired shape.
In the development era Die cast metal is made of metal (metal) and now there is also Die Cast which is made of plastic does not mean all is made of plastic but only as an element of supporting material, such as glass, tire or interior components.
The metal used is usually zamak (mazak) which is an alloy (mixture) of zinc (zinc) and alluminium. Zamak is also known as white metal or metal pot. Toys that usually use the die casting method are usually toy models with a scale such as cars, motorcycles, airplanes, construction equipment or trains.
Although actually anything can be made with this method. For the first time I will explain what the diecast is. Diecast is a form of mold / material derived from iron, aluminum, magnesium, copper or lead. In the miniature world of motorized vehicles, diecast becomes the main ingredient due to the superiority of the manufacturing material. The advantages include solid, easily shaped, rust resistant and lightweight.
Diecast in a miniature world
Everyday there has been a shift in meaning from the word diecast. Many people assume that the diecast is a small toy car from the Hotwheel brand, even though this is not all true. Now we move on to other supporting materials. For making a miniature motorized vehicle that is inseparable from plastic materials, this plastic serves to replace the diecast function on certain motor vehicle parts, for example on glass, tires or the interior of a motorized vehicle.
Each manufacturer has different diecast and plastic comparisons to produce their miniatures. There is more diecast, there is more plastic. This affects the selling value of the miniature produced, if the percentage of metal is very dominant, detailed and very fine, the price of Die Cast toys also becomes very expensive especially produced by well-known and branded toy manufacturers.
