Zinc

The 23rd most common element in the crust of the earth is zinc. The main ore mineral in the world is and has always been sphalerite, or zinc sulfide. In terms of tonnage produced, zinc ranks fourth among all metals in global production, only being surpassed by iron, aluminum, and copper. Zinc is an essential component of contemporary living.

Metal, rubber, and pharmaceutical items are all used using zinc. About three-fourths of the zinc that is used is consumed as metal, mostly as a galvanizing layer to prevent rust on iron and steel, as an alloying component of bronze and brass, as a component of die casting alloys, and as rolled zinc. The rubber, chemical, paint, and agricultural sectors use the remaining one-fourth as zinc compounds. Additionally essential for healthy growth and development in humans, animals, and plants, zinc is the second most prevalent trace element naturally present in the human body after iron.
