Zinc Silicate Description

Zinc Silicate (CAS 68611-47-2), also known as willemite, is a mineral (Zn2SiO4) and a minor ore of zinc. It is highly fluorescent (green) under shortwave ultraviolet light. It occurs in a variety of colors in daylight, in fibrous masses, solid brown masses (troostite), and apple-green gemmy masses.

Zinc Silicate Applications

Doped with manganese-II, Zinc Silicate (CAS 68611-47-2) fluoresces with a broad white emission band. Some versions had some of the zinc replaced with beryllium. In the 1940s it was largely replaced by the second-generation halophosphors based on the fluorapatite structure. These, in turn, have been replaced by the third-generation TriPhosphors.

Nowadays, Zinc Silicate has been used for inorganic zinc-rich coatings which afford superb corrosion resistance. They are also rock hard and very abrasion-resistant. They make some of the best anti-corrosive primers available. Ethyl silicate based inorganic zincs (Galvit ES600 & Galvit ES510) should be applied at 75 microns (dft). Because they have a tendency to grip unlike most other coatings, they may be applied to the faying surfaces of bolted steel joints. Inorganic zinc-rich primers have excellent resistance to temperatures up to the melting point of zinc (above 400°C).
