Zinc dust is a pure metal powder and available in the form of bluish-gray color, is odorless and insoluble in water. The zinc dust or powder is created when purified vapors of zinc are condensed. The characteristics of zinc dust include consistent quality, quick reaction time, and improved yields. Furthermore, owing to its reactive nature, it reacts with carbon dioxide very fast and creates the layer on the metal surface. The layer further prevents the reaction with air and water, thereby protects the metal surface from the rust. The metals on which zinc dust can be applied are copper, cadmium, gold, and silver. Zinc dust finds its application in the alkaline batteries, paints grease and lubricants, plastics, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics.

The rising demand for zinc dust in the cosmetics & personal care industry will fuel the growth of the zinc dust market.
