Zinc oxide in Rubber/EVA transformation processes

Zinc Oxide (ZnO) is a white chemical compound, obtained in the project in form of powder. Its physic-chemical properties convert it in a unique material with multiple applications, among others in rubber/EVA transformation processes. The ZnO is an excellent activator in the rubber compounds for the organic accelerant to deploy all its activity during vulcanisation.

Applications of ZnO as catalyser

A. Chica  In Science of the Materials, zinc oxide is classified as a semi-conductor of groups II-VI, whose covalence is in the limit within ionic and covalent semiconductors. The particular physical-chemical properties which ZnO presents (high chemical stability, high coefficient of electrochemical coupling, wide range of absorption of the radiation and high photostability, biocompatibility and

What is zinc oxide used for

Project GREENZO is in the process of the last fine-tuning of the pilot plant, once the design was defined, the required elements acquired and assembled and the control and automatisation system defined for proper operation. Although it requires the last fine-tuning, the pilot plant is obtaining the first samples of Zinc Oxide (ZnO) from zamak
