Both armpits and asphalt have sulfur containing molecules responsible for characteristic nauseating malodors of onion, rotten eggs or rotten cabbage. They can also both benefit from zinc chemistry! Zinc carboxylates react with sulfur containing compounds, binding negative gases and aromas.
Supporting various odor reduction technologies, our H2S scavengers help control and limit hazardous exposure to hydrogen sulfide. Over a half-million workers in the U.S. are exposed to toxic fumes from asphalt used in road paving, roofing, siding, and concrete work. H2S also wreaks havoc in both the upstream and downstream operations of the oil and gas industries.
Shepherd creates highly effective zinc chemistries for the removal of hydrogen sulfide from asphalt, and that absorb odors in other applications with high H2S concentrations.
Look at our BiCAT® Z as a PU catalyst, or consider our Zinc Carboxylates for H2S Scavenging applications.
Zinc has significant air and water corrosion resistant properties and is used extensively in coatings and plating. Zinc compounds are also widely used in personal care items such as deodorants, body sprays and shampoos—zinc oxide is commonly used as an effective sunscreen. Chemical uses include plastics additives, polyurethane catalysis and as an H2S scavenger.
Zinc is a diamagnetic bluish white lustrous and moderately hard metal.
