Precipitation Process

PRECIPITATION PROCESS

Zinc Stearate is a soft fine fluffy free flowing powder having characteristics odour. It is a “zinc soap” that is widely used industrially. It is a white solid that repels water and is in soluble in alcohol and ether but soluble in acid. The main application areas of Zinc Stearate are plastic & rubber industries where it is used as a releasing agent and lubricants.

Zinc Stearate through precipitation process. This grade has a fine particle size and low residual mineral impurities. That is why its main applications are required in mostly Paints, Lacquers and industrial coatings.

Through precipitation process light weight Zinc Stearate is produced.

OUR PRODUCT SPECIALITY

  • We can produce extra light weight Zinc Stearate with bulk density < .100gm/ ss.
  • We can produce Zinc Stearate with excellent melt transparency and the product remains transparent even after solidifying.

APPLICATIONS

RUBBER:-

rubberIn rubber industry zinc Stearate is used as a dusting powder to prevent sticking of unvulcanized rubber sheet. In rubber compounds it is used as an additive to improve flow and dispersion of vulcanizing agent through the compound.

 

PLASTICS:-

plasticAs a lubricant and/or dispersant for polystyrene, phenolics, polyolefins and urea.

 

 

 

PVC COMPOUNDS:-

pvcZinc Stearate is a mild stabilizer and cannot be used alone, mixtures with other stabilizer particularly alkaline earth metal Stearate s with epoxy stabilizer is quite effective.

 

 

 

 

PAINTS:-

woodIt is used in paint industry as a gloss imparting agent and a grinding agent. It repels water and also as an anti setting agent.

 

 

 

PHARMACEUTICALS/COSMETIC INDUSTRY:-

cosmeticIt is used as a smoothening agent as it improves the adhesion and smoothens off products like face powder etc.
