supplies Zinc Oxide for the Canadian and U.S. markets from
China, Taiwan, and Turkey. Zinc Oxide is a high surface
area, high specific gravity (5.6) material used by a wide
variety of industries such as pharmaceuticals, paint,
rubber, plastics, ceramics, glass, etc.
can supply Zinc Oxide made using the two main traditional
processes, American and French as well as active Zinc Oxide
made using the more advanced Wet process.
The Zinc Oxide is obtained from the direct smelting of
zinc ingot, and the resulting zinc fumes are
Zinc ash or dross is produced and sulfuric acid is used
to vaporize the zinc ash or zinc dross to extract the
zinc. The zinc fumes are then oxidized. This is also
called an indirect process and produces a product that his
higher in pH and lower in sulfur.
The Zinc ash or dross is purified with the Wet process
before being oxidized. This results in a zinc oxide that is
much more free of heavy metal contamination, is very pure
and has higher surface area.
