Zinc sulfide is an inorganic compound with a chemical formula of ZnS, which is a white or slightly yellow powder that becomes darker when exposed to light. Zinc sulfide is stable in dry air, and gradually oxidizes to zinc sulfate when left in humid air for a long time or contains moisture.

Zinc Sulfide Powder Applications

Due to its excellent properties, zinc sulfide is widely used in many fields.

1. Chemical
Zinc sulfide is mainly used in paints and plastics in chemical production. Because of its white opacity and insolubility in water, organic solvents, weak acids and weak bases, it becomes an important pigment in paints. Due to the high refractive index and wear resistance of zinc sulfide, zinc sulfide pigments have a relatively high hiding power when coated with a very thin layer on equipment, wax paper and metal plates.

Zinc sulfide is easy to disperse, not easy to agglomerate, is neutral white, and has good optical properties. It is often used as a component of thermosetting plastics, thermoplastics, reinforced fiberglass, flame retardants, artificial rubber and dispersants.
2. Ceramics
Zinc sulfide is used in ceramics because of its good sintering properties. The research shows that the sintering performance of the zinc sulfide powder with monodisperse particles is higher than that of the agglomerated zinc sulfide, and the sintering performance increases with the decrease of particle size.

3. Photoelectric
Zinc sulfide is a wide-bandgap semiconductor and a potential photonic material. Introducing different dopants into the nano-zinc sulfide matrix can obtain visible emission in different wavelength bands. Zinc sulfide is used for numbers, characters, symbols and automatic simulation display, computer terminal and radar display, large screen display, in military, transportation, post and telecommunications, etc.

4. Photocatalysis
Since nano-zinc sulfide is a kind of photonic material, it can generate photonic holes, and the energy level change and energy gap widening caused by quantum size effect enhance the redox ability, which is an excellent photocatalytic semiconductor.

5. Infrared performance
Zinc sulfide is an infrared optical material with high infrared transmittance and excellent optical, mechanical and thermal comprehensive properties. It is the best dual-band infrared observation window and hood material for aircraft. Using this property as a special absorbing material doped with pigments requires single particles with larger particle size, which can be modified by a metal nanolayer wrapped on the surface of zinc sulfide.
