Oh, I know how to read an MSD sheet. I do not believe the # published. That is the same temp that zinc melts. You alloy with Aluminum (1220 degrees), Magnesium (1202), Nickel (2651) and Iron (2800) and the melting point stays the same? I think not. I have not found a Zn weight to melt in my furnace.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
