Nano Zinc Oxide


Tata Chemicals has developed nano zinc oxide (nZnO) that offers improved anti-fungal, anti-microbial and UV blocking properties for industrial and cosmetic applications, including cosmetics, paints/coatings, adhesives, plastics and baby care products. Currently, it is finding use in facemasks as an added layer of protection against Covid-19.

Tata Chemicals' zinc oxide has been developed through nanotechnology innovations to produce a product with higher capabilities. A patented process ensures that the product is free of harmful heavy metal compounds. ZnO from Tata Chemicals is a perfect example of excellent efficiency packed in nano units.

ZnO is available in both micro-fine powder and dispersible solution to suit varied customer needs.

ZnSpers is the finest quality industrial grade nano zinc oxide in the form of a dispersible solution. It exhibits:

  • Better dispersion action making it uniform and almost transparent
  • Versatility with various mediums, including glycols and organic solvents
  • Properties of prevention of bacteria, mould, fungus, odour and stain, thus extending the product life
  • No heavy metal compounds, making it safe for children and babies
  • Broad-spectrum UV blocking properties, affording complete protection at the surface as well as deeper levels

Zing C Spl, pure grade nano zinc oxide, in powder form, is suitable for application in cosmetics and personal care products, due to:

  • Broad-spectrum UV blocking properties, for deeper protection
  • Better SPF (sun protection factor) properties
  • Anti-microbial properties
  • Larger surface area, leading to higher absorption of cross-section of UV rays at lower dosage

Zn Coat WD/Znmer, a functionalised grade zinc oxide, is a multi-functional ingredient, which ensures preservation of colour and gloss in paints and polymers, on account of the following superior features:

  • Transparent broad band UV blocker
  • Broad spectrum anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties
  • Higher surface area, leading to higher absorption of cross-section of UV rays at lower dosage
