Zinc Oxide (ZnO)

HS Code : 28170010 | CAS NO. : 1314-13-2

General description:

Caustic Soda Formula: ZnO

Zinc oxide is an inorganic white powder compound, and its formula is ZnO. As a mineral zincite, zinc oxide is available in the crust of Earth. Most zinc oxides used commercially are synthetic only. Zinc Oxide is produced by the French process generally.

Zinc oxide is a water-insoluble compound, but soluble in alkalies and most acids. It has a wide application in the industry such as Tyres and Rubber, Cosmetics, Polymers, Glass and Ceramics, Pharmaceuticals, Chemicals and Lubricants, Feed, Agriculture, Paint, Battery, etc.

Different grades of Zinc oxides include Gold seal, White Seal, Red Seal, Yellow Seal, Feed Grade, etc.

Application & Usage:

  • Zinc oxide is an essential ingredient in most rubber products as an important activator in the vulcanization process.
  • Zinc oxide(ZnO) is used in a wide range of cosmetics and personal care products including sunscreens, cosmetics, and skincare products because of its superior UVA/UVB protection, mild antiseptic effects, healing of chapped skin, and transparency levels properties.
  • In Ceramics, Zinc Oxide is used as a fluxing agent in the preparation of frits and enamels for ceramic objects.
  • Zinc Oxide is used in heat-resistant glass and cookware.
  • ZnO is used in the manufacturing process of various chemicals, such as zinc stearate, zinc diacrylate, zinc borate, Sodium Hydrosulphite, and others. These chemicals are themselves used in several applications that include plastics, rubbers, papers, textiles, and flame retardant materials.
  • Zinc oxide is also used in certain automotive lubricants. The main role of zinc oxide in automotive engine oils is to help in reducing the oxidation, corrosion, and wear on the engine.
  • For the source of zinc as a trace element for livestock, Zinc Oxide is widely used.
  • Zinc Oxide(ZnO) can substitute zinc sulphate in most of the fertilizers’ formula as a source for the essential element zinc.
  • Zinc contains paints that are used as anti-corrosive paints for pipelines, steel infrastructure, bridges, windmills, offshore rigs, petrochemical and power industries, etc.
