Light Zinc Stearate

Light Zinc Stearate

(Item NO: PZS201)

  Zinc Stearate is insoluble in polar solvents, but soluble in aromatic compounds and chlorinated hydrocarbons when heated. the main of applications of this stearate are the plastics and rubber industries, which are used as releasing material and composite lubricants.  Zinc stearate is used as an acid breaker and process aid in the production of some polyolefins. the paint and covering industries use uses zinc stearate to suspend pigments and improve grinding (powdering ability) and opacity. in the construction industry, light zinc stearate is used as a water repellent agent for gypsum, and due to the created characteristics, such as the final product with a smooth and low surface and low friction, prominent resolution and thermal stability, they are special and suitable for impact of PS crystal grade and other transparent polymers (PE, PS, PA, PVC, SMC, BMC) Zinc Stearate is used as a lubricant for covering papers and sandpaper. It is used as an additive in the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and health industries. It is also commonly used as a raw material along with other stearate salts such as calcium stearate, barium, etc. for the thermal stability of PVC.
