Zinc Oxide, alternately known by the names zinc white, Chinese white, and flowers of zinc, is widely used as an additive in many materials, including rubbers, ceramics, glass, adhesives, pigments, and foods.
It a desirable material in ceramics, owing to its relatively high heat capacity, thermal conductivity, high temperature stability, and low coefficient of expansion.
