le-zinc FORMULA: Zinc (Zn)   MATERIAL DESCRIPTION: Zinc  is a chemical element with symbol Zn and atomic number 30. It is an essential trace mineral present in a rock, soil, air and water. Zinc is used in alloys such as brass, nickel silver and aluminium solder. Large quantities of zinc are used to produce die-castings which are important in the automobile, electrical and hardware industries. It is also used extensively to galvanise other metals such as iron to prevent rusting. Zinc oxide is widely used in the manufacture of very many products such as paints, rubber, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, plastics, inks, soaps, batteries, textiles and electrical equipment. Zinc sulfide is used in making luminous dials and fluorescent lights.   EXTRACTION AND REFINING PROCESS: Roasting and sintering; electrolysis and smelting, require the prior removal of sulfur in a reaction:   BASIC PROPERTIES: compressive strength (N/M2) tensile strength (N/M2)                                   28 stiffness (N/M2) density  (KG/M3)                                               7140 carbon footprint (average KGCO2E/KG) recyclable                                                           YES laser                                                                     YES small laser                                                          YES milling                                                                 YES 3d printing                                                         YES   ADVANTAGE IN THE CONTEXT OF DIGITAL FABRICATION: ESSENTIAL role in the biological proceses of all humans, plants and animals PROTECTION-ability to protect still from corroison RECYCLING infinitely without loss of properties and quality SUSTAINABLE sorce of energy systems NON FERROUS metal that can be cut with CO2 laser FLEXIBLE, ELASTIC, SUITABLE for shaping-3D printing     MATERIAL SUPLIERS: Servei Estacio
