Rubber products represent the largest market for zinc oxide.
From rubber tires and general rubber to latex compounds, zinc oxide is used as an activator in the vulcanization or curing process. It also adds strength to rubber compounds, improves their resistance to heat and abrasion and helps guard against ultraviolet degradation.
ZOCHEM produces a technical grade of zinc oxide. This consistent grade is recommended for tire and most general rubber applications.
For rubber used in food, pharmaceutical and other specialized applications, we recommend our high purity product made from Special High Grade zinc.
ZOCHEM representatives will be pleased to discuss the grades best suited to your applications.
All grades are available in returnable super sacs and low melt batch inclusion plastic bags, tailored to customer specifications.
