Zinc Oxide is one of the most widespread micronutrients used in agricultural crop production worldwide. Zinc deficiency is recognized to cause a great damage to plants and grains, leading to reduced quality of crops. Zinc as fertilizer is used to improve the amount of zinc in soils and is applied to seed coating as well. With the continuous increase in demand for organic food, cereals, pulses, fruits and vegetables, the demand for zinc oxide is expected to increase to meet the needs of micronutrients in agriculture industry.
Zinc oxide is an essential component for human and livestock nutrition. Zinc deficiency causes poor reproduction, and loss of appetite in animals. Traces of zinc are important for animal feeding as they improve the metabolism in animals and actively effect the functioning of their growth hormones and enzymes.
Paints & Lubricants
Zinc oxide is one of the major colouring pigments used in paints to protect against harmful effects of mildew and ultra violet rays. Zinc derivatives are used as anti-fouling agents in paints for marine ships and steel structures to provide barrier against corrosion and increase the durability of coating protection. Zinc Oxide is also used for its anti-wear properties in manufacturing of specialized lubricants and grease formulations, for example automobiles.
Glass & Ceramics
Zinc Oxide is used as fluxing agent to produce special types of ceramic glass and enamels found in wall and floor tiles, sanitary, and cookware objects. It reduces the thermal coefficient of expansion while improving the brightness of color coatings. Zinc is majorly recommended for applications in outdoor glass fabrication, photo chromatic lenses and bath tiles, and tableware.
The major and most important global consumer of zinc oxide is the rubber industry. Zinc is used to accelerate vulcanization of rubber. Zinc derivatives play an important role in improving the physical properties and quality of various rubber products including tyres. Zinc oxide White Seal Grade is most suitable to ensure a good flowability and dust resistance in the finished rubber compounds.
Plastics and Polymers
Ultrafine zinc oxide powder is an ideal choice for additives in polymers and plastic applications such as transparent films, packaging, and protective textile. It improves the shelf-life and quality of the packed materials. Zinc oxide is recommended for use in engineered polymers due to its long lasting effects, heat stability and UV absorbing properties.
