For the production of sheets of zinc GOST 598 uses zinc grades TS1, U2, U0 according to GOST 3640. Zinc sheet is used for electrochemical cells, auto parts and Aviadevice, in the manufacture of anodes and cathodes, as well as a protective material in the heavy industry, because zinc has excellent anti-corrosion properties. Its corrosion resistance is caused by the fact that the interaction with the air flow, zinc plate covered with a layer of oxide or basic carbonate, which protects it from oxidation. This is the main reason, according to which an oxidizing agent after contact with the metal, will not be able to harm him, because the oxide film formed is practically insoluble and does not allow the reaction to develop further. Zinc sheet thickness ranges from 0.15 mm to 6 mm. On the surface sheet of zinc must be free from defects, such as dents, fingerprints, bubbles, and other, what would it could not affect its use for its intended purpose. When testing a zinc sheet passes a visual inspection. It is measured: it is necessary to know the thickness, width, leaf length. When measured using a "blind method", when the sample is selected at random. Further, zinc sheet is tested to determine the chemical composition and properties. Chemical control is done through the analysis of samples taken from each selected sheet according to GOST 2423, but it is possible to use other methods to study the composition. If the results in disagreement, for more detailed control study. The sheet transporting no special conditions are required, but you should always choose a covered vehicle. When storing a zinc sheet must be protected from possible mechanical damage on impact, falling, etc., Exposure to moisture or active chemicals.
