For collectors the term die cast replica or diecast model refers to any scale model car or scale model truck collectible produced by using the die casting manufacturing method.
The metal used in die-casting is either a lead alloy (used early on), or more commonly, Zamak (called Mazak in the UK), an alloy of zinc with small quantities of aluminium and copper. Lead or iron are impurities that must be carefully avoided in Zamac, as they give rise to a deterioration of the metal most commonly called zinc pest.
