Powder-form Ca and Zn stearates are widely used in the plastics industry as lubricants and components of heat stabilizers, especially for PVC, and in many other industries as lubricants or anti-caking agents. These used as internal lubricants in PVC formulations, also act as co-stabilizers that increase the heat stability, revealing their effects through the formation of the CaCl2 salt, which is produced as a result of their reaction with HCl that is released from the thermal degradation of PVC structure. Our high quality Calcium Stearates makes us one of the most sought after Metallic Soap Manufacturers in India.
Zinc is used as external lubricants in PVC formulations, zinc stearate and zinc laurate also have the reducing effect on the initial colouring. They act as co-stabilizers in the process, revealing their effects through the formation of the ZnCl2 salt, which is produced as a result of their reaction with HCl that is released from the thermal degradation of the PVC structure.
