Zochem Zinc Oxide Improves Paint and
Coating Performance

Zochem provides a wide range of surface areas to optimize opacity, reduced yellowing, and increase hiding power. A key benefit for various types of coatings is protection from otherwise harmful UV radiation.  High surface zinc oxide can also be used as a can lacquer coating to present the effects of food discoloration from sulfides of iron or tin.

  • UV absorbing pigment
  • Toughens film
  • Inhibits mold and mildew growth
  • Good corrosive inhibiting properties
  • Improves water resistance
  • Coatings formulated with zinc oxide provides provide improved
  • Biocidal, color retention and durability properties
  • In exterior oil-based and most latex formulations, our low surface area zinc oxide is recommended where consistency and low reactivity are required
  • The effects of weathering are reduced by increasing the coatings UV absorption.
  • Zinc oxide also neutralizes harmful acids
