Diecast tow truck toys

Diecast tow truck toys and models are made from non-ferrous metals, usually zinc, but sometimes copper, aluminium and magnesium are used in diecasting. The diecasting process raises the metal's temperature to 450 degrees centigrade, turning into a liquid state. The liquid metal is forced into the cavity of a diecast mould and then left to cool. Once it is cooled paint and other details are applied.

To add the finishing touches to diecast tow truck toys, other parts, such as the tyres, windows and lights are made from different materials, these include other metals, plastic, rubber and glass.
