What is the Main Application of Zinc Ingot?

03. 18, 2020

Zinc Ingot refers to pure zinc, and of course there are impurities, but as a zinc ingot, it has a purity of at least 90%. Application of zinc ingot: It is mainly used in die-casting alloy, battery industry, printing and dyeing industry, pharmaceutical industry, rubber industry, chemical industry, etc. Alloys of zinc and other metals are widely used in electroplating, spraying and other industries. As a Zinc Ingot Supplier, share with you.

Main application

(1) Galvanized

Zinc has excellent resistance to atmospheric corrosion, so it is mainly used for the surface coating of steel and steel structural parts (such as galvanized sheet), and is widely used in automobiles, construction, ships, light industry and other industries. In recent years, western countries have begun to directly use zinc alloy plates as roof covering materials, which can be used for up to 120-140 years, and can be recycled. The service life of galvanized iron plates as roof materials is generally 5-10 years.

(2) Manufacture of copper alloy materials for automobile manufacturing and machinery industries. Zinc has suitable mechanical properties. The strength and hardness of zinc itself is not high, but after adding alloy elements such as aluminum and copper, its strength and hardness are greatly improved, especially the appearance of zinc-copper-titanium alloys, whose comprehensive mechanical properties have approached or reached that of aluminum alloys and brass And gray cast iron, its creep resistance is also greatly improved. Therefore, zinc copper titanium alloy has been widely used in the production of small hardware.

(3) for casting zinc alloy

Mainly die castings, used in industries such as automotive and light industry. Many zinc alloys have excellent processing performance, and the pass processing rate can reach 60% -80%. Excellent medium-pressure performance, deep drawing, and self-lubrication, which prolongs the life of the mold. It can be welded by brazing or resistance welding or arc welding. The surface can be plated and painted, and the cutting performance is good. In addition, zinc has good resistance to electromagnetic fields. The electrical conductivity of zinc is 29% of standard electrical copper. In the case of radio frequency interference, zinc plate is a very effective shielding material. At the same time, because zinc is non-magnetic, it is suitable for the material of instrument parts and instrument housings and coins.

(4) Used in the manufacture of zinc oxide, accounting for about 11%. It is widely used in rubber, coatings, enamel, medicine, printing, fiber and other industries.

(5) Used in the manufacture of dry batteries, in the form of zinc cakes and zinc plates, accounting for about 13%.

Zinc has suitable chemical properties. Zinc can interact with NH4CI and emit H + positive ions. Zinc-manganese dioxide batteries use this feature of zinc. The zinc alloy is used as the battery casing, which is not only a container for the battery electrolyte, but also participates in the battery reaction to form the anode of the battery.
