A high purity, non-wettable powder with a uniform particle size (90% thru 200 mesh).
CALCIUM STEARATE GR (granule)
Offers low dust and easy handling. The low chloride content of STRUKTOL® Calcium Stearate allows for complete product dispersion in elastomers and meets the quality and processing demands of polyolefin, polystyrene and polyester manufacture.
A high purity stearate with a low soluble salt level that reduces discoloration during processing. It is an excellent dusting agent to prevent surface adhesion in ABS plastic and in other thermoplastics.
A short chain metal soap that can be used in a variety of plastic compounds to provide improved heat stability, specifically in compounds with high metal content.
A high quality technical grade stearic acid manufactured in a tightly controlled production operation that guarantees product uniformity. The bead and pastille forms have the major advantage of being essentially dust-free during handling, in contrast to powder forms. In all other aspects, the properties are equivalent to the standard stearates being used in the plastic and rubber industries.
