Zinc dust is a pure metal powder, which is grey in colour and is produced by condensation of purified zinc vapors. The particle shape is spherical. Zinc dust is suitable for use in many binder formulations for the manufacture of zinc primers and shop primers, for example inorganic ethyl silicate and epoxy primers.
Zinc dust is preferred in major applications such as chemical industry, paint industry and metal extraction industry. Improved yields, faster reaction kinetics and consistent quality are inherent characteristics of distilled grade Zinc dust on account of their greater homogeneity and uniformly fine particles. The uniform particle size and spherical shape of the product provides the zinc rich paint formulations superior brushing qualities and improved suspension characteristics.
- ZINC RICH PAINT
Zinc powder is used in zinc rich paint to protect steel surfaces from corrosion. Zinc-rich paint is an essential component of most heavy duty coatings, as used in the protection of major structures such as offshore oil rigs, steel bridges, petrochemical and powder industries. Other applications include the painting of sea containers and in the construction and maintenance of ships and marine equipment.
- MECHANICAL PLATING
Zinc dust is extensively used in mechanical plating / galvanizing, whereby small steel parts (screws, fasteners, rivets, bolts) are coated with a uniform layer of zinc, providing enhanced corrosion protection without the introduction of Hydrogen embrittlement. Sherardizing is an application to put a zinc coating on small steel parts, this application is similar to Mechanical Plating but applies at higher temperature (380-450° C).
- CHEMICAL APPLICATIONS
Zinc Powders are used in many chemical applications like Organo zinc in pharma, agro-chemistry and life-science applications, Recovery of gold & silver and PGM group metals (Merrill Crowe Process), Production of sodium or zinc hydrosulfite and of formaldehyde sulfoxylate, powerful reducing agents used for the bleaching of paper, textile or kaolin, Purification of leach solutions for the zinc metal production.
