Zinc Oxide

Zinc oxide is a chemical inorganic substance, white and odorless when at room temperature.

It is almost completely insoluble in water but is slightly soluble in acid or alkaline solutions. It is often found on the market as a white powder known as white zinc.

Zinc oxide has different applications. It is infact used in the rubber industry as an activator of the vulcanization process, in medicine for its antirritative properties and in cosmetics as a filter capable of dispersing solar radiations, protecting the skin from their harmful effects. In paint industry is instead used as an opacifying pigment and as anticorrosive coating for metals.

The ceramic sector as well consumes high volume of zinc oxide, in particular in glazes for tiles . The reason is that zinc oxide has the right properties to be used in this industry: thermal conductivity, resistance to high temperature, low coefficient of expansion. In small doses increases shiny and bright effect while in bigger quantity produces a matte effect.
