Zinc Oxide (ZnO), also known as zinc white, is one of the most widely used inorganic compounds in the world.
Within the ceramics industry, zinc oxide is crucial for the creation of glazes. By adding zinc oxide to the mixture, the gloss and whiteness of the glaze can be increased and the elasticity of the glaze can be improved. Because zinc oxide has strong melting effect in glaze, it can reduce the expansion coefficient of glaze, improve the thermal stability of the product, also increase the luster of glaze color. In the ceramic industry, zinc oxide is widely used in tile glaze, translucent glaze of coarse pottery and craft tableware.
Coastal Zinc provides selected grades of zinc oxide for advanced customers in ceramics, pharmaceuticals, personal care, animal nutrition and rubber.
