COAD 10 Calcium Stearate is a high-grade calcium stearate developed for the PVC processing industry. It has low chloride content and 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. It is an excellent mold release agent for matched metal die molding under certain conditions. COAD 10 Calcium Stearate also acts as an anti-sticking agent for rubber slabs where a dry powder is preferred and is useful for applications with zinc discharge limitations. Additionally, it may be employed in concrete and mortar admixtures to impart water repellency and to improve the flow and release properties of the dry mix.
Type: Metallic Stearates
