/Zincol Ossidi

Zinc oxide production in the plants located in Bellusco and Vado Ligure. The group has a productive capacity of 35.000 tonnes a year and it is responsible for 75% of the italian production.

Zincol Ossidi is one of the most important Italian industrial players in the zinc oxide sector: with two plants and a production capacity of around 35,000 tons, it is the first Italian producer and the third in Europe.

The great autonomy in the supply of the raw material, the zinc “matte” and the zinc SHG, and the strong flexibility in the production chain allows Zincol Ossidi to satisfy with a diversified production the needs of a wide range of industrial sectors:

Zincol Ossidi

  • The “Sigillo Verde” - Green Seal - quality is intended for manufacturers of tyres and technical rubber objects, as well as the ceramic industry for colours and enamels;
  • The quality of the “Sigillo Rosa” - Pink Seal - is used by the ceramic industry in the production of basic castings, technically called "fries";
  • The “Sigillo Oro” - Gold Seal - quality, which has the highest quality characteristics, is intended for the pharmaceutical industry and for lubricating oils, as well as particularly valuable stearates, paints and cables.

Production process

The entire production of the two plants is carried out using the direct method, also known as the “French process”: the metallic zinc, in the form of zinc mattes, coming from the galvanising process of the ferrous products, is vaporised in special containers resistant to high temperatures. The metallic vapours of zinc react with the oxygen of the air to form zinc oxide.
Production at the Bellusco plant is carried out in 8 crucible furnaces which guarantee a total annual output of 10,000 tons of Sigillo Verde quality zinc oxide.
The high quality of the final product is guaranteed by tests and measurements that, in a few minutes, provide optimal results and checks on both the raw material and the finished product.

The Vado Ligure plant produces zinc oxide using a unique technology, invented in-house and perfected thanks to the Group’s investments: the rotating kiln.

There are three operating units that combine very high performance with constant quality of the finished product. In this plant, SHG zinc ingots are used to produce the Gold Seal oxide, which is carefully analysed in the laboratory.

The zinc ingots are used to produce the Green Seal and the Pink Seal, which are transported to customers mainly on tankers loaded with an automatic process that eliminates the dispersion of dust.

Thanks to continuous investments Co.ge.fin. ensures a growing level of competitiveness, productivity and quality that allows to withstand the growing competition from emerging countries.
