Zink oxide represents an oxide zinc. Water insoluble, acids and strong base soluble. Zinc oxide, an important chemical additive, is commonly used for the manufacture of silicate products, plastics, rubbers, paints, ointments adhesives food, flame retardants, and batteries. At room temperature, zinc oxide exhibits excellent luminescence properties and has a high band gap and exciton bound energy. You can use it in liquid crystal displays and thin film transistors as well light emitting diodes.
As a nanomaterial, microparticles of zinc oxide also became a part of related areas.

How is Zinc Oxide used?
1. It’s used mostly as a reinforcement agent, active agent or in rubber cable industry, coloring agent, filler of rubber and vulcanizing agents in Chloroprene.
2. Fine desulfurization in the chemical fertilizer sector.
3. Mainly used for white pigments and rubber vulcanizing activate agents, organic catalysts, desulfurizing substances, for xerographic print, pharmaceutical, etc.
4. It is used to desulphurize NH3, petroleum, and natural gas chemical materials gas.
5. Use it as a matrix in the analysis of reagents, reference agents, fluorescent agents, and other photosensitive data.
6. Useful for electronic wet copying, dry printing, laser facsimile communication and electrostatic recording on electronic computers.
7. It is used for special functions, such as plastic occupation and cleaning textiles.
8. It’s widely used for deep desulfurization of industrial material such as NH3, methanol, and hydrogen production.
9. It is used to make plaster and ointment.
10. Useful in the printing, dyeing and papermaking industries, as well as matches and pharmaceuticals. As a coloring agent in natural rubber, latex and rubber industries, it is also used as an active ingredient, reinforcement agent and vulcanizing agent. You can also use it in production of zinc chromium, zinc yellow, and zinc carbonate. Additionally, it can be used to create feed additives in feed processing as zinc patching agents.
11. White pigment. This pigment has a lower coloring power than Lithopone or titanium dioxide. This resin is used extensively in ABS resin (C8H8) n and epoxy resin as well as phenolic and NH3-based resins and PVC, paint, and ink coloring.

What role does Zinc oxide play in coatings?
1. As a white color: Also known as Zinc white, zinc oxide is a pigment that can be used in white and other colors. Zinc oxide has a lower coloring power than titanium dioxide. This means that it can be used in situations where zinc dioxide is not required to change the color of titanium varnish. This makes it easy to weigh the paste and allows for the accurate adjustment of color.
2. This is a little-used method to increase the coating properties in epoxy resins with carboxyl functional bands.
Zinc oxide can be alkaline, reacts with epoxy resin functional groups to make zinc soap. The coating will improve flexibility and strength and it is lighter than titanium dioxide.

3. Promote the reaction between carboxyl and epoxy groups.
Epoxy resin/polyester / TGIC is an electrostatic material that accelerates the carboxyl reaction in epoxy reaction. The catalytic reactions are dry-solid and the solidification times are reduced.

4. It can be used as a filler for conductive functions.
Some industrial applications require the prevention of static electricity. This is because zinc oxide, a metaloxide, has an electrical conductivity. Therefore, it’s used extensively as a conductive coating.

5. It protects ultraviolet light.
Zinc dioxide is an inexpensive white light stabilizer. This has a high level of security protection, particularly for ultraviolet light between 240 and 380nm. This coating is used in outdoor electrostatic powder and has good UV shielding properties. It can extend the life expectancy of your powder.

6. You can remove bacteria and mildew.
Zinc oxide can sterilize architectural coatings that are water-soluble and has strong germicidal abilities. Use it in the form of electrostatic powder to get rid mildew.

Why does rubber contain zinc oxide?
While zinc oxide makes up a tiny part of rubber compound production, it still plays an important role. Together, zinc oxide and the stearic acid make zinc soap. This improves zinc oxide’s solubility in rubber compound. It also forms a complex that contains an accelerator. This is a very powerful compound that reacts strongly with sulfur and forms a powerful vulcanizing agents. This is the key to rubber production.
Additionally, rubber can be made more cross-linked by zinc oxide during production. Zinc oxide reacts to stearic to create Zn2++ sodium, which chelates to the side hanging rubber accelerator containing phosphorous. This makes weak bonds more stable, shifts cracking positions of sulfur bonds, allows rubber vulcanization to produce a shorter crosslinking bond, improves cross-linking and increases crosslinking density. Additionally, this can improve the aging and thermal properties as well as the performance of vulcanizates.
