Zinc Oxide in Japan – Variety Industrial Standard of Zinc Oxide
Zinc Oxide is used in many applications due to its multifunction properties. It is commonly used in many industries such as automotive, ceramic, paint, cosmetic, pharmacy, and many more. Zinc oxide is very popular globally because it has some unique characteristic that cannot be replaced by other ingredients. For example, the rubber industry is the biggest consumer of zinc oxide worldwide because zinc oxide is the most effective activator to speed up rubber vulcanization. Recent developments of zinc oxide in Japan have even expanded the use of it such as heat dissipation, flat panel display replacing LED, transparent conductive layer for solar cell, thermoelectric conversion, transparent transistor, and many more.
Zinc oxide in Japan, based on Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS), is classified into Type I, Type Ⅱ and Type Ⅲ. Let’s break down the classification of zinc oxide in Japan further.
Zinc oxide in Japan which is classified as type Ⅰ, is produced from electrolytic zinc (SHG Grade). It meets the International standards of critical high quality uses. This type of zinc oxide is used in applications as cosmetics and pharmaceutical needs. It is also widely used as a raw material for manufacturing ferrites.
Zinc oxide in Japan which is classified as type Ⅱ is produced from electrolytic zinc. This type of Zinc oxide has unique properties that can be used in multiple applications from paint, ceramic enamel, and as a vulcanizing sub-accelerator for rubber. This type of zinc oxide is very popular especially for high quality paint because it has a better light resistance than titanium oxide, so the paint has less yellow color changing over time. This type of zinc oxide is also commonly used in other applications such as the manufacture of transistor radio antennas and fly-back transfer in TV’s communication equipment. Further, zinc oxide type Ⅱ is one of the most important ingredient for the manufacture of Zinc Phosphate which is used as an anti-corrosive treatment chemical on steel plate.
Zinc oxide in Japan which is classified as type Ⅲ is produced from the distillation of zinc and majorly used as a vulcanizing accelerator. It is commonly combined with sulfur as a compounding agent for rubber, in the range of 5-10% of oxide to rubber. This makes the rubber industry the biggest consumer of zinc oxide worldwide. Zinc Oxide type Ⅲ has also used in many other manufacturer, like ceramic ware, electric cables, and in porcelain enamels.
