Zinc

A global leader in zinc: Nyrstar is one of the world's largest zinc smelting companies based on production volumes. Nyrstar produces zinc in concentrate from its mining operations and a variety of refined market zinc products including special high grade zinc (SHG), zinc galvanising alloys, and zinc die-casting alloys as an outcome of its zinc smelting process. Zinc has diverse applications and uses, from construction and infrastructure, to transport, industrial machinery, communications, electronics and consumer products. This makes it an essential and highly sought-after resource.

 

We convert the raw material into zinc metal for use in numerous different end use applications. Zinc provides excellent corrosion resistance to iron and steel. It is also a relatively hard metal with a low melting point, making it suitable for die casting, but still soft enough to be formed, rolled, or extruded.

You’ll find zinc in everything from construction and infrastructure to transport and industrial machinery, from communications to electronics, and from consumer products to human health.
