TIB zinc chloride anhydride is anhydrous due to our complex manufacturing process and has an orthorhombic crystal structure, whereas the Zn2 + ions are tetrahedral coordinated to four chloride ions unlike the other polymorphic forms. The covalent character of the anhydrous material is indicated by its relatively low melting point of 275 ° C.

TIB zinc chloride is available in various purity grades and specifications, in standard technical grade, free from heavy metal contamination such as nickel, lead, cadmium, copper and thallium, or low oxychloride, free of nitrogenous compounds or organic contaminants.

The production process of TIB Chemicals is extremely environmentally friendly, with a high dependency on secondary raw materials that secure or conserve natural resources.

However, TIB Chemicals customers do not need to worry about the manufacturing process. We guarantee that our products are absolutely pure and fully in accordance with our specifications.

TIB Chemicals Zinc chloride is used in a variety of applications such as zinc-carbon batteries as an electrolyte in fluxes for galvanizing, brazing and tinning. In the petrochemical industry as an excellent emulsion breaker and "completion" solutions, in the water treatment as a special corrosion inhibitor, as a catalyst or catalyst precursor, in ore processing as a flotation agent, as a wood preservative, in the chemical industry in the production of methylene chloride, glue, diazo dyes , Paper, cosmetics, artificial silk, synthetic fibres e.g. Nylon, disinfectants and fire foams, in the agricultural, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries.
