What does nano zinc oxide mean?
Nano zirconium oxide (ZnO), has a range of particle sizes from 1 to 100 nm. The ZnO is a fine, inorganic, high-performance product. It exhibits special properties like non-migration. The absorption and scattering ultraviolet light can be used by people to produce gas sensors and piezoelectric materials. Many people don’t see the amazing properties of nanomaterials because of their microscopic differences. But, through experience, nanozinc oxide has been more commonly used in rubber and many other fields due to these excellent properties.
Characteristics for Nano Zinc Oxide
One of the most striking features of nanoscale zinc oxide products is the fact that they are made up of tiny particles. It has both the traditional characteristics and the nano-level properties of zinc oxide. This zinc oxide has unique properties that are not found in traditional zinc oxide products. It is more specific than other materials and has high chemical activity. The product particle shapes can also be easily adjusted depending on the needs.
Prepare Nano zinc oxide
Zinc oxide can be prepared in three ways: either direct or indirect. Most zinc oxides available on the marketplace today are direct or indirect products that have a micron particle size and very small surface areas. Their application areas and performance are severely limited by these properties.
Wet chemical methods are used to produce nano-scale, ultra-fine activated Zinc oxide. This is done using various Zinc-containing raw materials. After multiple purification processes have been completed, the acid leaching of zinc and precipitation has taken place to make basic carbonic Acid Zinc. Finally nano-zincoxid can be made by roasting.
Nanozinc oxide is used
Powders of metal oxide such as aluminum oxide, zinc dioxide and magnesium oxide. This size effect is caused when these powders have been made nanoscale. Light absorption increases as the interval decreases. There are many powders that have different light shielding and reflecting efficiency. Comparing zinc oxide with titanium dioxide shows that when the wavelength exceeds 350 nanometers (UVB), they have similar shielding performance. But when the wavelength is between 350400nm and UVA, zinc oxide’s shielding efficiency is substantially higher than titanium dioxide. The refractive Index of zinc dioxide (n=1.9) and diffuse reflectance are both lower, which make it easier to dye textiles.
Also, nanozinc oxide can be used for far infrared reflective material materials. These are also commonly called far infrared clay powder. This type of far infrared reflecting functional fibre absorbs heat and radiates far infrared light within a specific wavelength to the human eye. This fiber can not only increase the circulation and blood flow, but also reduce infrared heat rays. It can also reduce heat loss by storing heat and insulate the fiber as compared to the other fibers.
