50% Zinc Oxide Active is a stable fine particle size dispersion of high surface area. The higher activity than standard Zinc Oxide gives potential savings through lower addition and less effluent discharge. Zinc oxide dispersion is used as an activator in sulphur vulcanisation of natural and synthetic elastomers. It is an important stabiliser formulation of water based replacements of solvented contact adhesives It can be used has a filler and preservative in wood and paper applications and is a UV absorber.
