November 1, 2016 -
U.S. Zinc owns the largest, single site zinc dust plant in the world. It’s located in Houston, Texas and is our second-best-selling product after zinc oxide. The zinc dust we manufacture has a variety of practical uses. It’s used in paints and coatings as a corrosion protector, so products don’t rust or deteriorate as quickly. Zinc dust is also used in gold and silver mines to help recover these precious metals. From small bolts to large boats to a beautiful gold wedding ring, you can find zinc dust at work in everyday life.
