Zinc Oxide Micron Powder
Zinc oxide is an inorganic compound with the formula ZnO. ZnO micron powder is a white powder which is not soluble in water, and it is largely used as an additive in numerous materials and products. ZnO occurs naturally as a mineral called zincite, however, most of the zinc oxide is produced synthetically. Zinc oxide and zinc oxide micron powders have gained considerable interest in the last decades due to their combination of unique properties. Zinc oxide compound exhibits polytypes, in other words, it has more than one possible crystal structure. It can exist in both in the hexagonal wurtzite and cubic zinc blende structure. ZnO has antibacterial and deodorizing properties, It has high heat capacity and heat conductivity, low thermal expansion and also high melting temperature. It is a wide-bandgap n-type semiconductor of the II-VI semiconductor group. It has good transparency, high electron mobility, and strong room-temperature luminescence. The applications of ZnO micron powder can be given as rubber manufacturing, UV absorber, food additives, cigarette films, coatings for metals, corrosion prevention in nuclear reactors, ceramic industry, medicine.
