What does zinc stearate-emulsion mean?
Zinc Stearate is an organic material with a chemical composition of C36H70O4Zn. It comes as a powder in white and is not soluble in water. This is mainly used to lubricate and act as a release agent for phenolic resins, styrene and amino resins. Additionally, this product can be used as an activator for vulcanization and softener in rubber.
Zinc stearate emulsion is called an aqueous solution.

. This agent can be used in a variety of ways, including as a color retain agent, release agent and lubricant.
Inc Stearate Emulsion Characteristics
Water insoluble, but soluble in hot organic solvents, such as toluene or benzene. Decomposes to stearic acid when it comes into contact with acid.
Two methods for producing zinc stearate are available: The water method or the melting method.
Zinc stearate made by water is generally acidic and melting is alkaline. This is sometimes called the “wet” method. To control the temperature and pressure in the water, a catalyst and then a metallic hydroxide are added. To make stearin, the metalions are first replaced by catalysts. In order to generate metal salts, acids are used. Post-processing is performed on the catalyst and it can be recycled. After being centrifuged and dried, the stearate can be ground into a product that is 200 to 600 mesh. This meets all industry standards. Because water production is often characterized by a slightly higher level of stearic Acid, the end product will appear acidic.
Also known as the “dry method”, the melting process is when the metal oxide (indirectly method zinc oxide), is added to the molten Stearic Acid (subject to the presence of catalyst). Adjust the temperature, pressure, and stirring speed for stearate by reaction. Because the catalyst is present in most reactions, these products can be completely reacted. The metal oxides produced by the dry process are somewhat excessive so it’s alkaline.
Emulsion of zinc stearate
Zinc Stearate can also be used to heat stabilizers, lubricants; grease; accelerator; thickener. You can use it as a heat stabiliser for PVC resin. This product can be used for general industrial transparent products. It can also used together with a calcium soap to create non-toxic products. Although this product is mostly used for soft products, it has been increasingly used in hard transparent products in recent years such as water bottles, pipes and mineral water bottles. The product is very lubricious and may be used. It is able to reduce the appearance of fouling and it can also be used as an additive to paints.
Zinc Stearate Emulsion is versatile in many applications including plastics, rubber, coatings. Paints. Thermal paper. Cosmetics.
Rubber industry: active agents, release agents, and release agent
Industry plastic: Internal release agent
Coating industry: color retention agent, filler, etc.
Paint industry: grinding aids
