We convert the raw material into zinc metal for use in numerous different end use applications. Zinc provides excellent corrosion resistance to iron and steel. It is also a relatively hard metal with a low melting point, making it suitable for die casting, but still soft enough to be formed, rolled, or extruded.
Zinc Oxide is necessary for ceramic tiles, frit, glaze, Zinc oxide along with stearic acid activates sulfur crosslinking of rubber. In addition it provides pigmentary properties which enhance the ability to absorb frictional heat an important property in tire performance.
