English term or phrase: special high grade zinc
This is a generic term for top quality zinc (consisting of 99.99% zinc and tiny amounts of various other metals) - is there a specific term in German?

Reines Zink/ Special-High-Grade (SHG)-Zink
Explanation:
Special high grade zinc is also called pure zinc:
e.g:Today, the recently expanded Kokkola plant has a production capacity of 225,000 tonnes of Special High Grade (SHG) zinc (99.995% pure zinc) annually. This is 3% of the world production.

In some places I also saw that the English version was maintained as in ... aus Special high grade Zn 99.995%...(Link 1).
I think it would be a good idea to keep it as it is.
