North American Oxide, said to be America's newest manufacturer of zinc oxide zinc oxide, chemical compound, ZnO, that is nearly insoluble in water but soluble in acids or alkalies. It occurs as white hexagonal crystals or a white powder commonly known as zinc white.  and zinc dust, offers an informative web site describing the company's environmentally-designed state-of-the-art facilities. Both zinc oxide and zinc dust are produced in Clarksville, TN.

NAO is said to be a major consumer of special high grade zinc and secondary sources of zinc. Purity Zinc Metals, NAO's sister company in Stoney Creek, Ontario

Stoney Creek was a municipality which is now part of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada after amalgamation by the province in 2001. This article will only deal with matters up to its amalgamation with Hamilton.
, Canada, provides a second production point for zinc dust. Additional products include zinc anodes and zinc alloys.

Products and services, industry news and purchasing information are highlighted on North American Oxide's web site.

Zinc oxide is a fluffy white powder with an exceptional variety of properties, some of which are unique, according to the web site. Zinc oxide is a white pigment with high opacity Refers to being "opaque," which means to prevent light from shining through. For example, in an image editing program, the opacity level for some function might range from completely transparent (0) to completely opaque (100).  and is insoluble in water, solvents and neutral oils. Its fine particle size possesses high brightness and relatively high refractive index A property of a material that changes the speed of light, computed as the ratio of the speed of light in a vacuum to the speed of light through the material. When light travels at an angle between two different materials, their refractive indices determine the angle of transmission . It imparts whiteness, hiding power and tinting strength. Production processes, surface modification, markets for zinc oxide, details on supply/demand and pricing information are provided on the web site.

All NAO zinc dust grades are produced from 99.99% pure zinc metal. Zinc dust for coatings applications and for plating and galvanizing galvanizing, process of coating a metal, usually iron or steel, with a protective covering of zinc. Galvanized iron is prepared either by dipping iron, from which rust has been removed by the action of sulfuric acid, into molten zinc so that a thin layer of the zinc  applications is featured. Applications are described and product specifications are provided.

NAO is said to be a major consumer of primary special high grade zinc and secondary sources of zinc metal.

Designed and developed specifically for specialty naphthenic lube oil production, the Hydrocal II high-pressure hydrotreating process features a computerized, distributed control system A distributed control system (DCS) refers to a control system usually of a manufacturing system, process or any kind of dynamic system, in which the controller elements are not central in location (like the brain) but are distributed throughout the system with each component  for precision control of the multi-stage catalytic reaction zones. The catalyst system selectively converts aromatics, sulfur and nitrogen compounds with minimum viscosity reduction.
