Zinc Oxide in Malaysia - Growing Market & Promising Opportunities
A great deal of worldwide demands in the zinc oxide (ZnO) market is pinned by a wide variety of industrial applications. The zinc oxide market has over the recent years gathered marked momentum from growing morbidity of bacterial infections on the public healthcare system. The use of zinc oxide in Malaysia and other countries in Asia has been growing recently.
In several countries, outbreaks of pathogenic strains have bolstered the need for antibacterial ingredients, where zinc oxide is emerging as a promising avenue.
Since the market is growing and the demand is higher each year, more zinc oxide companies are emerging. However, a great zinc oxide manufacturing company certainly needs to adapt a particular standard in order to produce world-grade zinc oxide.
About Zinc Oxide
Zinc oxide is a white inorganic compound that is commonly used in many industries. There are two types of zinc oxide based on the form: powder and paste. There are also various kinds of zinc oxide with specific characteristics to provide any kind of manufacturers’ needs of some exact raw material to manufacture their product. Some composition in zinc oxide that needs to be concerned including Cadmium (cd), Cooper (Cu), Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn).
In producing some kind of product, manufacturers will also need different specifications of zinc oxide to give the desired result. Zinc Oxide is widely used as an additive in numerous applications and products including plastics, ceramics, glass, cement, paints, adhesives, cosmetics, foods, and many other products.
Producing Zinc Oxide
There are various ways to produce zinc oxide that will result in different specifications of Zinc Oxide. These specifications can be chosen depending on what kind of product will be produced. At Citra CakraLogam (CCL), we produce only high-quality Zinc Oxide with French Production Process. In this process, the metallic Zinc is melted and vaporized at a very high temperature. This vapor then will react with oxygen in the air and produce Zinc Oxide (ZnO) as the result.
Citra CakraLogam (CCL) uses only Special High Grade (SHG) Zinc Ingots as the primary raw material for production. This will allow the producer to flexibly control the purity, color, and physical property in the result material. With excellent quality material and using the right method, it will allow us to always supply customers with the highest possible zinc oxide purity in the market.
The Standard for Chemical Production
There are various standards that need to be fulfilled by a manufacturer to produce high-quality products. International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is one of the most popular standardizations used in any kind of business, including manufacturers.
ISO is a standard and management system to measure the quality and credibility of an organization from the management, operation until the product results to reach global standards. Citra CakraLogam has implemented ISO guideline standards to ensure the company’s quality and In 2003, PT Citra CakraLogam acquired ISO 9001 Quality Management System.
Standar Nasional Indonesia (SNI) is a standard applied in Indonesia to determine whether a product’s quality meets Indonesia’s national standard. SNI is formulated by the Indonesian Technical Committee and stipulated by BSN (Badan Standarisasi Nasional). In 2020 PT Citra CakraLogam has obtained SNI 0085: 2009 certification which discusses Zinc Oxide products.
Zinc oxide companies with this certification should be able to cater to worldwide industries as its quality is guaranteed internationally. The demand for zinc oxide in Malaysia and other Asian countries is growing, let alone the companies providing the material.
Zinc Oxide in Malaysia & other Asian countries
The zinc oxide market can be segmented into rubber, ceramics, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, agriculture, and others. The rubber industry has the biggest percentage of the market and is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period due to the extensive usage of zinc oxide as the main vulcanizing agent in the vulcanization process of rubber.
The automotive industries are anticipated to expand during the forecast period, which in turn is projected to drive the zinc oxide market. Its high use in the tire industry is anticipated to propel the market for zinc oxide in the Asia Pacific, as it is a major market with lucrative growth opportunities for the tire industry.
This is certainly a promising opportunity for the use of zinc oxide in Malaysia and other countries in Asia. Even though the demand for zinc oxide from the rubber industry is increasing, but the product quality can’t be compromised.
Citra CakraLogam is a trusted and qualified Zinc Oxide Manufacturer and has been serving global shipments to several major countries. We handle the distribution of zinc oxide in Malaysia, Australia, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Philippines, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, India, and will continue to expand the global distribution.
