Zinc powder is used in thermal spraying for corrosion protection and in the chemical industry. It provides chemical potential energy in alkaline batteries to pump electrical charges between the negative and positive terminals. It is used as a fuel for model rockets with a mixture of 2.04 parts zinc to one part sulfur. It is used as protective pigment in industrial coatings, as a reducing agent and catalyst in a variety of chemical reactions.

Hazard Statements: H250-H260-H500
Catches fire spontaneously if exposed to air. In contact with water releases flammable gases which may ignite spontaneously. May form combustible dust concentrations in air
Precautionary Statements: P210-P222-P223-P231+P232-P280-P335+P334-P370+P378q-P501c
Keep away from heat/sparks/open flames/hot surfaces. - No smoking. Do not allow contact with air. Keep away from any possible contact with water, because of violent reaction and possible flash fire. Handle under inert gas. Protect from moisture. Wear protective gloves/protective clothing/eye protection/face protection. Brush off loose particles from skin. Immerse in cool water/wrap in wet bandages. In case of fire: Use CO2, dry chemical, or foam Dispose of contents/ container to an approved waste disposal plant
