Manufactured by the atomization of molten zinc, zinc powder is coarser than zinc dust. Used in a variety of chemical, metallurgical, corrosion resistance and battery applications, this fine grey metallic powder will vary depending on the purity of the molten metal. Horsehead controls the size of the zinc powder by varying the atomization rate and utilizing specific sieve size when screening the powder.

Horsehead manufacturers two basic lines of zinc powders:

Special Zinc Powders used in general chemical and metallurgical applications and in friction applications such as brake linings for automobiles.

Battery Grade Zinc Powders used in most types of alkaline batteries as well as mercuric oxide, silver oxide and zinc-air batteries.
