Silver enhances conductivity and efficiency in automotive electronics, including switches and relays. Hindustan Zinc's value-added alloys, such as HZDA 3 and HZDA 5, offer high strength, electrical conductivity, corrosion resistance, and dimensional tolerance, meeting the evolving needs of the automotive industry.

#### **Sustainable Solutions for a Changing Industry**

As the auto industry shifts towards localization, electrification, and stringent emission norms, domestically produced zinc, lead, and silver present sustainable, high-performance solutions for the future.
