Calcium Stearate

CALCIUM STEARATE

PRECIPITATION PROCESS

Calcium Stearate through Precipitation process is also known as purified, refined or synthetic calcium carbonate. It is non-toxic product and as along as it meets certain purity requirements it can be used in paper products that come in contact with food. Calcium Stearate is generally made from a high purity calcium carbonate rock called limestone. Calcium Stearate through Precipitation process, products can be made with very small sizes, with high surface areas, high oil absorptions, and/or with different powder bulk densities.

FUSION PROCESS

Calcium stearate is a white waxy powder. It is produced by heating stearic acid and calcium oxide. It is an insoluble salt of calcium, steatic acid and palmatic acid. It is insoluble in water ether, acetone and cold alcohol. Calcium stearate is used as a drying lubricants and dusting agents for rubber.
