Quality Control

Quality control is a key factor in the production of zinc oxide. Our in-house laboratory tests materials at every stage of the production process, from raw material feed through to the finished ZnO product.

Cutting-edge facilities

Using a new, state-of-the-art Thermo Fisher iCAP-Pro XP ICP-OES spectroscope we prepare samples using hotplate acid digestion. We analyse samples for trace elements such as sub-ppm levels of cadmium, manganese and copper in our zinc oxide to higher percentages of zinc, iron and lead in our incoming feed material.

By allowing us to test and analyse on the spot, our in-house laboratory dramatically improves our turnaround times compared to other producers.

We are able to assess both our incoming waste materials and our end products accurately and in a fraction of the time it would take using external laboratories.
