What is zinc Stearate Emulsion (ZnSe)?

It is a substance that has the chemical formula C36H70O4Zn. It is a powder that is not soluble in water. It is used primarily as a release agent and lubricant for styrene and phenolic resins, and ammonia resins. In addition, it is also used as a rubber softener and vulcanization initiator.

The aqueous emulsion zinc stearate has been called

Zinc Stearate Emulsion

. It can be used in a number of ways, such as as a lubricant, color-retention agent, release agent etc.


Inc stearate Characteristics

It is insoluble in water and soluble only in organic solvents that are hot, such as benzene or toluene. Decomposes to stearic and its salts in acid.

The water method or the melting method is the two main methods for producing zinc stearate.

In general, zinc-stearate that is produced using the water method tends to be acidic and alkaline. The water method can also be called the wet technique. The water is used as a medium. A catalyst is then added to control temperature and pressure. The metal ions will be replaced by stearin by the catalyst. Acid is added to the solution in order to generate metal salts. The catalyst goes through post-processing, and it is recycled. The stearate must be centrifuged, then dried and ground until it reaches a mesh size of 200-600. This product meets industry standards. In water production, there is usually a small excess of stearic acetic acid. This makes the final product appear acidic.

The dry method of melting is also called this method. It is the addition of metal oxides (indirect method of zinc oxide) to a molten stearic (of course with the presence of catalyst, or else the conversion rate would be very slow). Controlling temperature, pressure, and stirring speed is necessary to produce stearate. Dry method products can be fully reacted because of the presence and general reaction results of the catalyst. Also, metal oxides in the product are slightly over-excessive, causing the product to appear alkaline.

Use of Zinc Stearate Emulsion

Zinc Stearate can also be used as an accelerator, thickener or lubricant. As an example, zinc stearate can be used in general as a heat stabiliser for PVC. Useful in transparent products for industrial use; when combined with calcium soap it can be used as a non-toxic product. Generally, this product has been used in softer products but, in recent years, transparent and hard products like mineral water bottles and water pipes have also been used. This product can be used because it has a good lubricity. It is a product that can improve the look of fouling and also act as a lubricant.

Zinc stearate is widely used in rubber, plastics coatings paints thermal paper cosmetics and other industries.

Rubber Industry: release agents, release agents, active Agent, etc.

Plastic industry: internal release agents

Coating industry: color retention agent, filler, etc.

Paint industry: grinding aids

Cosmetics industry: lubricants
