"All tires have to have zinc oxide in them, because it improves the properties of the rubber in the tires. It's also used in the fertilizer industry, to promote the growth of crops. It's used in pharmaceuticals – it's actually used in all sorts of creams for beautification products. So it's very very safe, not like other heavy metals."
Part 1 12076:1986 Precipitated silica for rubber industry 3 CLASSIFICATION 3.0 The type of zinc oxide used in the rubber industry and related to the production process. 3.1 French Process or Indirect Type When zinc oxide is manufactured by the burning of zinc vapour (produced by boiling zinc metal) it is called French Process or indirect type.
Applications of Zinc Oxide for Rubber Industry Rubber products represent the largest market for Zinc Oxide. ZnO is a widely used compound in rubber industry due to the excellent properties it shows as an activator for vulcanization of rubber. Vulcanization is a chemical process for converting natural rubber into a more durable material.
With some systems, Zinc Oxide is an effective co-accelerator in the vulcanization process. Biochemical Activity Zinc Oxide for Rubber Industry is useful in the preservation of plantation latex as it reacts with the enzyme responsible for the decomposition. The oxide is also a fungistat, inhibiting the growth of such fungi as mold and mildew.
Common Zinc Uses. Two examples of zinc compounds are zinc oxide and zinc sulfide. Zinc oxide is used to make various products including make-up, rubber, and prescription drugs. Zinc sulfide can be found in x-ray equipment, fluorescent lighting products, and different kinds of paints.
