Kirksite as a " term" seems to not be used very much. It is a zinc
alloy with copper ( 3%?), with some aluminum and some magnesium..
right at the moment I can't find the exact alloy but it is not very
much different from the ZAMAC #2 and #5 die casting alloys. I think
it may not be inventoried much and only sold in pallet quantities
to people like Boeing, Ford or GM.
A few years ago when buying some from Atlas metals they said they
sold one of these for Kirksite.
Eastrn alloys does have a little info on their site a while back
they had a lot more. I printed it down and probably have it in my
computer archive somewhere too.. Waiting for the Mac Tiger this
winter -- it is supposed to have a great archiving recovery system.
It is zinc so read an MSDS-- Fumes from the molten metal are not
good for you.
