The Lone Wolf Metals & Trading Company specializes in supplying high-purity Zinc Powder. Zinc metal has a grayish shiny appearance, is odorless, and is practically insoluble in water at ambient conditions. It is brittle at ordinary temperatures and is naturally occurring substance found in rocks, animals, plants, soil, and volcanic dust/gases. It produces toxic Zinc Oxide fumes when heated to very high temperatures or undergoes ignition. Sphalerite, a sulfide derivative of Zinc is its principal ore. High-purity Zinc Dispersion Powder is used chiefly as a reducing agent, as a pigment in corrosion-resistant coatings for iron and steel, and in sherardizing. High-purity Zinc substances are often used in the processing of non-ferrous metals such as zinc, gold, silver, indium, platinum, and other metals used in reduction and substitution reactions, and in the removal of impurities.
