Zinc Sulfide is used as a friction material to carry sulfur, which hardens rotor surfaces and thereby reduces wear. Also in printing inks, UV-hardened systems, powder coatings, adhesives, insulating & sealing compounds, thermoplastic pigmentation, thermosets, flame resistant plastics, glass-fiber reinforced plastics, pigment concentrates, elastomers,. textile fibers, paper, mastics, lubricants, electroluminescent lamps, infrared windows, domes and optical elements.
