ФормулаZnO Сорт
СинонимыZinc oxide Фасовка20 kg; 25 kg


Zinc white — a synthetic inorganic pigment of white colour which is zinc oxide obtained from the metal zinc.


Depending on the purpose, zinc oxide is usually produced branded as БЦ0. Zinc white received wrapped can be marked as БЦ0 М and БЦ1:

  • The product marked as БЦ0 М is used in the rubber and tires production industries, paint, artificial leather and rubber sole, electrical cable, dental cements, abrasive products for dentistry;
  • The product marked as БЦ1 is used to make paints, asbestos, artificial leather and rubber sole.

Safety requirements

Zinc white is fire and explosion-proof. It is a substance of the 4th level of danger for the human body.


Zinc white is packed in paper and plastic bags, steel, cardboard, veneer and plywood drums with a polyethylene insert, wood barrels, wood with a polyethylene insert and plastic barrels, paper bags, plastic bags as well as in special soft disposable containers.
