Zinc processing. Its most important use, as a protective coating for iron known as galvanizing, derives from two of its outstanding characteristics: it is highly resistant to corrosion, and, in contact with iron, it provides sacial protection by corroding in place of the iron.
Zinc oxide is an inorganic compound with the formula Zn O.ZnO is a white powder that is insoluble in water, and it is widely used as an additive in numerous materials and products including rubbers, plastics, ceramics, glass, cement, lubricants, paints, ointments, adhesives, sealants, pigments, foods, batteries, ferrites, fire retardants, and first-aid tapes.
Uses and Properties: Our Active Zinc Oxide has surface area from 30 to 50 m2/g. This is better than the 3-5 m2/g of normal Whit Seal Zinc Oxide. Intended for Rubber products with special requirement: Solution SBR tires, Side wall of passenger tires, radial tire, thick rubber pieces needing good thermal conductivity, Sporting goods, Auto parts,.
Now we want to start manufacturing active zinc oxide through wet process. we are totally new in this field and any kind of help in this regard ( process of manufacturing, raw materials and substitutions, applications, discharge of effluents and wastes, recycling of wastes etc)would be duly appreciated. people who are already into this should please forward their experiences so that we can also learn …
INDIA'S LARGEST Zinc Oxide MANUFACTURER. With production capacity of over 30,000 TPA of Zinc Oxide, Rubamin is the largest manufacturer of Zinc Oxide in India. Our dedicated team of professionals, certified processes, centralized R&D centre and advanced unit laboratories are recognized and approved by leading companies worldwide.
Zinc oxide is used in a remarkable number of dental products, mostly cements,  for reasons of reactivity, radio-opacity, whiteness, and low cost, but also – given those other benefits – low toxicity. Zinc is an essential element in human physiology as a component of many enzymes, but is apparently tolerated at levels well above those .
Manufacturing Process. In the production of French Process zinc oxide, zinc is melted, then vaporized and drawn into an oxidation chamber. Controlled conditions at the oxidation stage produce the particle size conforming to the individual grades manufactured. When cooled, the zinc oxide is collected, sampled, and analyzed to ensure conformity to grade specifications.
PCC has established since 1979, a multilocational and multiproduct - manufacturing company have six factories in China and one in Taiwan produce all kinds of inorganic compound. Taichung plant: Produce Active Zinc Oxide, Zinc Carbonate, Copper Oxide, Copper Carbonate, Zinc Chloride.
Manufacturing Process. In this process, the starting point is metallic zinc, which may be, secondary (recovered), galvanisers' waste or dross. The metal is volatized from retorts and the vapours are oxidized to finely divided Zinc Oxide.
