Metallic stearates are compounds of long-chain fatty acids with metals of different valencies. The most important metallic stearates, in terms of quantity, are the metallic stearates of aluminium, calcium, magnesium and zinc. The main advantage is their manifold range of use. The most important ones are: lubricating properties, separating properties, water repellence, gelling capacity, stabilising effect, foam inhibition, acid scavenger. Our metallic stearates are available in different product forms: as fine powders with a large surface, as prills, as flakes, as pastilles, as AV-granules, as rodlike-granules.
