Active zinc oxides

Our active zinc oxides are particularly well suited to the rubber industry’s specific needs.
Silox’s wet chemical process yields a high specific surface (BET 40-50 m2/g), which gives our products exceptional performance as vulcanisation activators.

This high performance enables the industry to reduce the amount of zinc oxide in its rubber compounds (observed decreases of from 40 to 70%, depending on the application), thereby reducing costs and heavy metal concentrations commensurately.

What is more, our active zinc oxides have high bioavailability. This enhances their performance in applications in life science-related fields (personal care, zinc-enriched fertilisers, and advanced animal feeds).
