Zinc Oxide (white) Pigments for anticorrosive properties in metal-protective coatings.

Press Release   •   May 11, 2016 15:07 IST

Zinc oxide is an inorganic compound which is insoluble in water. Zinc oxide is widely used as an additive for pigments, glass, ceramics, plastic, paints, lubricants, adhesives & sealants, foods, etc. Zinc oxide pigments usually appear in two forms including powder and dust. Zinc metal powder (zinc dust) and zinc compounds have long been utilized for their anticorrosive properties in metal-protective coatings, and today they are the basis of such important especially metal primers as Zinc Chromate primers. Zinc oxide pigments have large number of applications in host of industries such as paint, pharmaceutical, electronic, agricultural, rubber industry, brick kilns, ceramic and glass compositions, chemical and metallurgical industries. Rubber industry has been one of the predominant end user industries for zinc oxide pigment, wherein it provides increased ability to absorb heat generated due to friction which enhances performance of tire. Zinc oxide pigments also help decrease melt temperature of glaze thereby reducing energy requirements. In addition, zinc oxide pigments are also used chiefly in pharmaceutical industries to impart color and disease-specific properties to pharmaceutical products.
