Zinc Chloride General Information

Zinc chloride is the name of chemical compound with the formula ZnCl2 and its hydrates. Zinc chlorides, of which nine crystalline forms are known, are colorless or white and highly soluble in water. ZnCl2 itself is hygroscopic and even deliquescent. Samples should therefore be protected from sources of moisture, including the water vapor present in ambient air. Zinc chloride finds wide application in textile processing, metallurgical fluxes, and chemical synthesis. No mineral with this chemical composition is known although a very rare mineral, simonkolleite, Zn5(OH)8Cl2H2O, is known.


Dry Cell  or Batteries: Zinc chloride is commonly used in dry cell batteries as an electrolyte.

Electroplating: Today, there are three primary types of acid zinc plating baths: straight ammonium chloride, straight potassium chloride and mixed ammonium chloride/potassium chloride. Acid zinc plating systems have several advantages over alkaline cyanide and alkaline non-cyanide zinc plating systems except that in acid zinc plating, the electrolyte is extremely corrosive.

Galvanizing, Soldering and Tinning Fluxes:  Zinc chloride is used in fluxes for galvanizing, soldering and tinning.

Agriculture: It may be reacted with chelating agents to form solutions of zinc that are biologically available to plants and animals. It's the Chelate manufacturing that consumes Zinc chloride.

Petroleum: It is an excellent emulsion breaker and is used to separate oil from water.

Water Treatment: It is used in specialty corrosion inhibitors in cooling towers, potable water, and in gas and oil wells.

Resins: It is used in Ion - Exchange resins production.

Paints: It is used in for the production of lithopone and as pigment for zinc chromate.

Rubber: It is used as accelerator in the vulcanizing process of rubber.

Glue, wood working: Zinc chloride is used in for the preservation of glue, and for the impregnation of timber.

Printing: It is used in off-set in the chemical products.

Odor Control: It reacts with sulfide to minimize release of H2S gas in waste treatment facilities.

Oil-Gas Wells: High-density solutions of Zinc Chloride and calcium chloride give good performance in well completion and work-over operations; the solutions also used as packer fluids under certain well conditions. ZnCl2 has been used in specialty corrosion inhibitors and invert emulsion breakers.

Vulcanized Fiber & Reclaimed Rubber:

Animal drug: It is used for the production of zinc bacitracin.

Herbicide: Zinc chloride is used as an herbicide. It is used to control lichen and moss growing on the roofs of houses and other domestic dwellings, along walks, driveways, fences, and wherever moss grows.

Miscellaneous: ...and many more.
