The Role of Zinc Oxide in Coatings

Mar. 06, 2021

Zinc oxide produced by Zinc Chloride Manufacturers is mildew resistant and can inhibit the growth of microbes and fungi. Generally speaking, ceramics and tank coatings use indirect zinc oxide with a small particle size and high purity; indoor coatings and latex coatings use needle-like direct zinc oxide to make them have a higher oil absorption value and improve suspension performance.

Zinc Chloride has a high refractive index, has the ability to absorb ultraviolet light, and its tinting power and hiding power are strong, but the color is pure white, does not chalk, has good light resistance and heat resistance; it can interact with the carboxylate in the coating Acid radical ions form coordination compounds to reduce the water sensitivity of the coating film. Therefore, zinc oxide produced by zinc oxide manufacturers can improve the weather resistance and chalking resistance of the coating film, and is suitable for exterior wall coatings.

The Zinc chloride produced by zinc oxide manufacturers makes the product coating flexible, firm, and impervious to water, thereby preventing the rust of the gold ship. However, it is not suitable to mix with the base material with more free acid, and the rabbit will produce more zinc soap, which will make the paint sticky and difficult to brush.

Zinc chloride is used for anti-corrosion or ship coatings, can form dense zinc-titanium compounds, reduce the rate of further penetration of corrosive media, and mainly play a role in preventing rust.

Zinc chloride is an alkaline compound that can react with trace amounts of free fatty acids to form zinc soap, which tends to thicken the coating, and will dissolve when it meets inorganic acid or acetic acid.
