Past Applications for Zinc Needles

Filler for brake and clutch friction pads

Zinc needles offer the perfect amount of sturdiness for clutch friction pads in vehicles. When friction is initiated between the engine and transmission, the zinc in the pads help absorb the force safely and efficiently.

Feedstock for chemical applications

Zinc is a great feedstock for large-scale chemical reactions.

Feedstock for battery applications

Lithium-ion battery production is ramping up as electric vehicles gain popularity. Zinc is among the several raw materials used in this production.

Feedstock for fuel cell applications

Fuel cells touch a number of vital industries including transportation, portable, and emergency backup power. Zinc needles are one of the key catalysts to keeping these in motion.

Briquetting binder in master alloys

Just as briquette binders play such a key role in the process of briquette production, zinc plays a huge role in the briquetting binders themselves.
