We have vast experience and an understanding of the techniques, processes, capabilities, and applications of products made from non-ferrous metals (zinc, lead, copper, and others) for different industries. We are constantly developing new products and applications to provide our final and intermediate customers with more added value.
We are specialists in the production of ZINC OXIDE GOLD SEAL 99.9% - U.S.P. (United States Pharmaceope) and B.P. (British Pharmacoeia).
Our production is based on the French method using electrolytic zinc (Special High Grade - S. H. G. 99.995%). This procedure guarantees the best quality of the product for the appropriate use in the mining, pharmaceutical, plastic, glass, ceramic, paint, animal feed, phosphorus, cosmetics, rubber, electronic industries, among others.
Here are some of our zinc oxide characteristics:
We go deeper into the benefits of our flagship product in our blog, with the article titled Applications and uses of Zinc Oxide.
We are specialists in the production of Copper Sulfate Pentahydrate. The quality of our raw materials, our standardized processes and physical-chemical control and analysis systems guarantee the quality of the product for the appropriate use in the industry.
In agriculture, it is used in pest mitigation. As a fungicide, it is effective in preventive treatments over different alternatives. It is also used as a bactericide, with the ability to attack certain fungi and bacteria. It is also used as a fertilizer, and because of its excellent solubility, it can be applied by sprinkler irrigation, drip irrigation, direct root injection, hose irrigation or foliar spraying.
It is used as an additive in animal feed to reduce copper deficiency, being a growth stimulant and the fattening of pigs and farm chickens. It prevents bone fragility and anemia in dairy cattle. It is a disinfectant and prevents bacteria, as well as an antiseptic and germicide in fungal infections.
It can be used as a mineral micronutrient and cupric catalyst in the production of pharmaceutical products as anti-microbial agents.
In the metallurgical industry, copper sulfate is usually used as a solution for galvanic baths, in the production of copper printed circuits (electric batteries) and in obtaining copper cathodes.
In mining, it is used in the flotation process for lead, zinc and cobalt separation, it is widely used in metallurgical processes as a sulfide activator of zinc, iron, cobalt and nickel, because of the ionic replacement of copper by zinc.
Copper sulfate is also present in the pharmaceutical industry, where it acts as a mineral micronutrient and copper catalyst in the making of products such as anti-microbial agents.
Properties of Copper Sulfate:
It is a zinc, aluminum, magnesium and copper alloy. This alloy, depending on the percentages and final uses, can be ZAMAC 2, 3, 5, 7, Tonsul and other formulations according to your requirements.
Zamac, or zamak, by its initials in German, is used in the elaboration of auto parts, home appliances, toys, zippers, carburetors, automobile oil pumps, automobile handles, plates or logos, bathroom and toilet articles, fan frames, computers, camera components, refrigerator handles, gas regulators, shelves, hardware, buckles, ornaments, candlesticks, trophies, among others.
Zinc alloys are used for injection molding and die casting, depending on the amount of alloying elements it possesses, can have different properties for a given use. The most common are the following :
The thermal, electric, and insulating characteristics of non-ferrous metals, along with their recycling capacity, make them indispensable for certain industries, such as the mechanical, automotive, shipping, aerospace, electricity, energy, pharmaceutical, and feed industries, among others.
Animal Feed, Fertilizers, Paints and Plastics. In this new entry of our blog, we offer you a guide with the most important commercial events.
At ZINSA, we have been committed for over 40 years to the personal and professional development of our employees, protecting the environment, and high quality standards, thus providing our customers with more added value while guaranteeing an unparalleled service experience.
Did you know that zinc is an important component of human health? In this note, we will explain how zinc sulfate and zinc oxide can benefit us, as well as the effect, should there be a deficiency of them.
