Zinc (Zn) Metal

Zinc is a bluish-white, lustrous metal with fair electrical conductivity. It is brittle at room temperature but malleable at 100 to 150ºC. Zinc is used predominantly as an alloy with other metals to galvanize them to prevent rusting.

Various purities are available between 99.9% to 99.9999%.
Detailed Particle Size Information

Various powder granulations are available from 20 X 325 mesh to 325 mesh and finer with an APS of 5 microns or less
