What is zinc sulfide?
Zinc sulfide is a white to grey-or pale yellow powder. See, the light darkens. Stable in dry air, a long time in wet air or containing water, gradual oxidation to zinc sulfate. Soluble in dilute inorganic acid, soluble in alkali, and insoluble in water. Uses Used as analytical reagent, fluorescent, and photoconductor material and also used in dyes, paints, pigments, glass, curing oil manufacturing, etc. and as a variety of filters and laser window coating. Do not allow undiluted or large quantities of products to come into contact with groundwater, waterways, or sewage systems if they are slightly hazardous to water. Do not release materials into the surrounding environment if permitted by the government.
What is zinc sulfide used for?
The most common use of ZnS is as a pigment for paints, plastics, and rubber. Lithopone, a mixture of ZnS and barium sulfate (BaSO4), is a widely used pigment for low-gloss paints. ZnS is phosphorescent, which makes it useful for several electronic and decorative applications. Slightly toxic by ingestion. Target organs: None knew. This material is considered hazardous by the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200). Breathing in zinc sulfate can irritate the respiratory tract and cause nausea, vomiting, stomach ache, dizziness, depression, metallic taste in the mouth, and death. Exposure to skin contact can damage the skin leading to ulcers, blisters and scarring.
Is zinc sulfide explosive?
Zinc sulfide produces zinc and sulfur fumes at temperatures greater than 900 C in inert atmospheres. Contact with strong acids may liberate hydrogen sulfide, forming explosive mixtures in the air. Lithopone is an alternative to Zinc Sulfide. ZnS (Sachtolith) is a very expensive pigment with lower opacity and light fastness than TiO2. The only real reason to use ZnS is that it is soft (Mohs 3) and because it is not abrasive. Because zinc cadmium sulfide does not dissolve in water or fats and dissolves only slightly in strong acids, it is not likely that it can pass through your skin if you touch it or enter your bloodstream if you take in air, food, or water that contains it.
