What is Zinc Sulphide Used for?

From April the French government will reduce fuel taxes slightly to ease the burden on consumers. 

Warned of possible energy shortages in France by the end of the year and called on the French to conserve electricity and gas from now on, saying that if nothing was done, The energy situation will be tough this winter. Some experts say that there are two main reasons for France's energy crisis: first, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine affected the gas market and caused supply tension; The second is a safety review of France's newest nuclear power plant, which may lead to a reduction in output this year. In order to alleviate the energy crisis, the whole French society needs to be mobilized, whether it is the industrial sector, the tertiary sector or every French citizen. Now it is urgent. Rising fuel prices may also have an impact on shipments of the zinc sulphide. 

What is zinc sulfide?

Zinc sulfide is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula ZnS, which is a white or slightly yellow powder, which becomes darker when exposed to light. It is stable in dry air, and gradually oxidizes to zinc sulfate when placed in humid air for a long time or when it contains moisture. White or slightly yellow powder. It turns into crystals when burned in H2S gas. The α variant is a colorless hexagonal crystal with a density of 3.98g/cm3 and a melting point of 1700°C; Exist in sphalerite. Insoluble in water, soluble in acid. See the sun color darken.


Zinc sulfide (ZnS) is a naturally occurring salt and a major source of zinc. It exists in two common crystalline forms (polymorphs): sphalerite ("sphalerite"), which has a cubic crystal structure and is the predominant form in nature.


It will be converted into zinc sulfate when placed in humid air for a long time. It is generally derived from the action of hydrogen sulfide and zinc salt solution. If a small amount of Cu, Mn and Ag are added to the crystal ZnS as activators, they can emit different colors of fluorescence after being illuminated. For analytical reagents, coatings, paints, white and opaque glass, filling rubber, plastics, and for the preparation of phosphors.


What is zinc sulphide used for?

The most common use of zinc sulfide is as a pigment in paints, plastics and rubber. It can also be used as an analytical reagent, a matrix of phosphors, a photoconductor material; it can also be used in the manufacture of dyes, coatings, pigments, glass, and curing oil.
