Fanchem Aluminum Stearate (ksk6016) has the form of a white powder. It is insoluble in water, alcohol, and ether, but soluble in alkali, petroleum and turpentine oil.
Aluminum Stearate is commonly used as a paint and varnish dryer, waterproofing agent, defoaming agent, cement additive, in lubricants, cutting compounds, and in some food and pharmaceutical products.
Aluminum soaps have different and widespread applications (1-4), aluminum stearates being among them especially important.
Aluminum tristearate is useful in paints and enamels and in the flatting of varnishes. It also prevents bleeding and oil separation in putty. Aluminum distearate is the most commonly used grade of aluminum stearate. It is used as a thickener in paints, inks and greases; a water repellent for leather and rope; and a lubricant in plastics and rope.
It is also used in cement production for waterproofing and air entrainment, and in hot-melt paper coating compounds. Because of its unusually heavy bodying properties, aluminum monostearate is used in the manufacture of paints, inks, greases, and waxes (3). In recent years (5), hydrophobic aluminum monostearate was tested as a low-solubility denitrification substrate for anaerobic bacteria and a source of aluminum for phosphate precipitation.
Aluminum stearate has potential for use in a flow-through container for denitrification of oxidized effluent from home sewage systems. It was also referred that the preheated mixture of metal soaps, along with the costabilizer, delayed the fast blackening of the polymer, but mainly showed a reduction
