Metallic stearates are derived from long-chain fatty acids and a metal oxide compound. The fatty acids, in turn, are derived from a triglyceride (natural fats and vegetable oils, i.e. renewable feedstocks). Main representatives of metallic stearates are calcium stearate, zinc stearate, magnesium stearate.
AsiaPalm offers an extensive portfolio of metallic stearates with diverse properties. The portfolio includes calcium stearate, zinc stearate, magnesium stearate, barium stearate and lead stearate. These products can be employed as acid scavengers, stabilizers, lubricants and release agents, among other applications, and some are ideally suited for use as gelling or hydrophobic agents. Metallic stearates can enhance production processes, and, in many cases, they enable manufacturers to develop products with smooth surfaces and low friction.
Lubricants are divided into two areas, internal and external lubricants. The transition between external and internal lubricating effect is fluid, however, – internal lubricants often also have a certain external lubrication effect and vice versa. Lubricants having both effects are therefore called “combined lubricants”.
Fatty acid esters are widely used as lubricants、dispersant、slipping agent、emulsifier in petroleum、textile、thin film and so on.
Calcium fatty Acids are rumen-protected fat which pass through the animal rumen and are digested in the small intestine, avoiding the negative effects on fibre digestion associated with rumen- active sources of fats.
