ArChem Zinc Oxide (also known as Oxozinc, Zinc White, and Zinc Oxide Powder) is a white powder with the formula ZnO. Oxozinc is insoluble in water and found naturally in the mineral zincite. However, most commercially used zinc oxide is synthetic.
Due to its unique physical and chemical properties such as high chemical stability and high photostability, Zinc Oxide can be called a multifunctional material. Some of the industries in which Archem Zinc Oxide is used are:
ArChem Oxozinc is a highly insoluble thermally stable compound, suitable for different industrial applications such as glass, plastics, and adhesives. Chemical and physical properties of ArChem Zinc Oxide are:
|Molecular weight||81.4 g/mol|
|Boiling Point||2360 °C|
|Melting Point||1,975 °C|
ArChem Zinc Oxide has various applications in different industries. More than 50% of Zinc Oxide is used in the rubber industry and especially in the tires. Another main use of this product is in concrete manufacture. Some other uses of ArChem Zinc Oxide include:
Most of the world’s zinc oxide is manufactured via French process. In this process, metallic zinc is melted and vaporized at temperatures above 907 °C. Zinc vapor reacts with the oxygen in the air, accompanied by a drop in its temperature. Then, Zinc Oxide particles are transported into a cooling channel and collected in a container.
Storage conditions of ArChem Zinc Oxide are listed below:
Zinc Oxide is hazardous in case of inhalation. Plus, it is slightly hazardous in case of skin contact, eye contact, and ingestion. Some of necessary first-aid measures are described as below:
Operators should wash hands before breaks and after work. they should use personal protective equipment and wear chemical impermeable gloves, when handling Zinc Oxide to avoid contact with the body, skin, and eyes.
Zinc Oxide is mostly used in rubber and ceramic industry, pigments, coatings and textile industry.
Zinc Oxide is also known as Oxozinc, Zinc White, Zinc Oxide Powder, and Amalox
