Coad® 10 Calcium Stearate is a high grade calcium stearate developed for the PVC processing industry. It has low chloride content, low specific surface, exhibits excellent heat stability properties for high temperature processing, and provides mold release properties critical for thermoplastics and thermoset molding. Coad® 10 Calcium Stearate meets the requirements of PPI-TR3 and NSF Standard 14 for potable water.
Common Applications: Coad® 10 Calcium Stearate acts as a dispersing aid during the blending cycle, as a lubricant and processing aid during extrusion, and as a mold release agent for injection molding. Coad® 10 Calcium Stearate is an excellent mold release agent for matched metal die molding under certain conditions. Coad® 10 Calcium Stearate acts as an anti-sticking agent for rubber slab where a dry powder is preferred. It is useful for applications with zinc discharge limitations. Coad® 10 Calcium Stearate may be employed in concrete and mortar admixtures to impart water repellency and to improve flow and release properties of the dry mix.
Type: Metallic Stearates
