I would require the details of the constituant elements listing for zinc alloy 5 contained in specification FR EN 12844 (Or also listed per ISO 3815-2 or BS-EN12844 or just EN-12844). Just need to cross check details of our material which conforms to our US specification (ASTM B-240) Any help appreciated.

RE: Assistance required ISO 3815-2 (NF EN 12844)

The composition of ZP0410 (ZP5) in EN 12844 is as follows:

Al 3.7-4.3
Cu 0.7-1.2
Mg 0.025-0.06
Pb = 0.005 max
Cd = 0.005 max
Sn = 0.002 max
Fe - 0.05 max
Ni = 0.02 max
Si = 0.03 max

Table A.1 of EN 12844 lists the various national equivalents to this grade, which is AC41A (alloy 5) from ASTM A 240 or ASTM B 669 for the USA.

Thanks TVP, that's spot on. Very much appreciated.
