Zinc oxide with chemical symbol ZnO, is described as an amorphous white powder used as a pigment in plastics. It is also reported to be the best ultraviolet light absorber of all commercially available pigments.

It is white or yellowish-white; white turns yellow on heating; odorless; absorbs carbon dioxide from the air; used in pigments, ceramic glazes, and opaque glass and in the manufacture of magnetic ferrites and specialized ceramics.
Zinc oxide is a common constituent in high-grade fluoride opal glass, in tank-window glass, and in some optical glass and commonly used in dry-process, cast-iron enamels.
