Human beings can be exposed to the ill effects of chemical substances by way of inhalation. Exposure by inhalation depends on the concentration of the substance in the atmosphere and inhaling high concentrations of poisonous chemicals in the form of fine powder can be hazardous and detrimental.
While all chemicals are supplied with material safety data sheets informing users of the risks of exposure, preventive mechanisms and action in case of exposure, Rubamin is constantly working to improve the safety of workmen, transporters, handlers, etc. Rubamin tests the particle size distribution, bulk density and other physical attributes before reporting them to the customer in the certificate of analysis provided along with the product.
Rubamin’s Zinc Oxide can be used for a variety of applications ranging from tyres and rubber goods to human and animal nutrition. It is available in Micro Prills and this form ensures the product is non-dusty. We have also commissioned a palletizing plant which converts the zinc oxide powder into pallets to make the product free flowing and easy to handle at all user locations.
The free flow ability of the pallets make them suitable for use in processes involving automatic weighing, conveying or dosing systems. This not only improves efficiency at customer locations but it also reduces waste from fly off. Above all, it eliminates the risk to workers’ health. Rubamin has also tied up with master batch companies for manufacturing pre-dispersed chemicals leading to zero risk for end users.
