ZINC OXIDE, ZINC POWDER AND ZINC WIRE
Zinc is an extremely versatile metal, which is why it plays a vital role in industrial activity and is used in countless applications in different sectors. For example, zinc is used in a wide range of applications in the transport, infrastructure, consumer goods and food production sectors. More than 11 million tons of zinc are produced annually worldwide, almost 50% of which is used for galvanizing steel, or in other words, to protect it against corrosion.
Around 17% is used to produce brass and another 17% in the production of zinc-based alloys, mainly in the die-casting sector.
Significant amounts are also used in compounds, such as zinc oxide. Of course, we have zinc oxide in stock for our clients, as well as other zinc products: zinc powder and zinc wire.
Characteristics of Zinc powder and Zinc wire
Another of the products always in stock at our warehouses, in order to ensure rapid and efficient delivery, is zinc powder. Our drums of zinc powder weigh around 25 kg.
Zinc powder is mainly used in the manufacture of chemical products and anti-corrosive paint.
Finally, we also have zinc wire, a high purity wire used in metallisation using the flame spray process.
Zinc wire can be pure, with a minimum zinc content of 99.95%, or alloyed, 85/15 aluminum zinc wire, with different thicknesses (1.6, 2, 2.5 and 3 mm).
It comes in 200-kg drums, approximately (20-kg reels).
