Zinc Stearate is insoluble in polar solvents, but soluble in aromatic compounds and chlorinated hydrocarbons when heated. The main related fields of application are the plastics and rubber industries, which are used as release agents and lubricants that can be easily combined. Zinc stearate is used as an acid breaker and process aid in some polyolefins.
The paint and coating industry uses zinc stearate to suspend pigments and improve grinding (powdering ability) and opacity.
In the construction industry, it uses zinc stearate as a hydrophobic agent for gypsum, and due to the created properties, such as the final product with a smooth surface and low friction, high resolution and thermal stability, they are special and suitable for PS crystalline grade impactability and other transparent polymer (PE, PS, PVC, SMC, BMC)
Zinc Stearate is used as a lubricant for coating papers and sandpaper. It is used as an additive in food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. It is also commonly used as a raw material with other stearate salts such as calcium stearate, barium, etc. For thermal stability of PVC.
