Zinc in the manufacture of cement, dentition, construction of cobre, foaming, pottery, rubber products, automobile, kitchen appliances, steel sheeting (galvanizing), bronze and rice alloys, soldering, cans of toothpaste, metal glue, silver German and ... Zinc oxide and zinc sulfur are used as a white dye in the coloring and preparation of plastics, zinc sulfate in dyeing and making adhesive and zinc chloride in soldering and preventing wood corruption.
Anodes are used to prevent corrosion of the ship's body, drilling platforms and underwater pipelines. If the zinc is used to make zinc or rice plates, its aluminum size should not exceed 0,005%. The amount of tin in the top grade should not exceed 0.001%. The amount of aluminum in the PW type should not exceed 0.05%. Extreme electrochemical activity prevents cathodic corrosion in iron and steel products. Zinc blend with copper and the formation of rice alloys, which have characteristics such as low temperature use, corrosion protection and fine plastering.
Two other grades for zinc metal are accepted for galvanizing purposes. One is called Continious Galvanizing Grade, which has up to 35% lead and some aluminum. And the other is called Controlled Lead Grade, which has less than 18% lead and comes from aluminum.
One of the most important uses of zinc in various industries is the following:
• Zinc is used as part of battery tanks, cast iron molds and automotive industry.
• Zinc oxide is used as a white pigment in blue (ocean) and a variety of paintings.
• Zinc chloride is used as an antiseptic (body spray) and as a preservative for wood.
• Zinc sulfide is used in pig iron pigments to make clockwork and other objects that glow in the dark.
• Methyl on Zn (CH3) 2] is used in the synthesis of organic matter.
Calcium-based lotions are a mixture of carbonates and Silicate and Zn-hydroxy-Carbo silicates that are used to treat bouts of skin.
