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:

  • Rubber
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Cosmetics
  • Textile
  • Electronic and electrotechnology
  • Photocatalysis

Zinc Oxide Production

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.

Zinc Oxide Storage 

Storage conditions of ArChem Zinc Oxide are listed below:

  • Zinc Oxide should be stored in a dry and cool place with general ventilation.
  • Containers should be tightly closed.
  • Storage temperature of this product is in the range of 15 – 25 °C.
  • Zinc Oxide should be kept away from incompatibles such as acids.

Zinc Oxide Health Hazards

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:

  • If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Seek medical attention immediately.
  • In case of ingestion, do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Seek medical attention immediately.
  • If in eyes, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove any contact lenses. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.
  • In case of skin contact, wash with soap and water. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. Get medical attention if irritation develops.

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.
