In the original diffusion coating process, finished metal components were placed into an enclosed cylindrical drum containing a filler medium, typically sand, to which zinc dust
Zinc for zinc oxide and zinc dust

The result is patented AvantGuard technology, which uses a combination of zinc dust
, hollow glass spheres and a proprietary activator to activate more of the zinc in the coating.
A mixture of zinc dust
and aqueous sulphuric acid is sprayed into the dryer, and the particles stick to one another until they gradually agglomerate into beads of a certain size.
When concerns were raised about dust blowing from trucks along the haul road, millions of dollars were spent to study the potential health effects of the zinc dust
In 2011, production was 17,286 tons of copper, 716 tons of cobalt and 12,342 tons of zinc contained in zinc dust
The high volume of zinc dust
pigment (up to 90% by weight) reduces the strength of the coating, increases permeability, and makes delamination of the paint film more likely.
TSIL manufactures sulphoxylates and zinc-based products such as sodium hydrosulphite, sodium formaldehyde sulphoxylate (Safolite), zinc formaldehyde sulphoxylate (Safolin), zinc dust
, and zinc oxide and its salts.
ZRC is a technology component zinc rich coating that provides 95% "ultra pure" zinc dust
in the dry film.
