Abstract:A general review of the manufacture, properties, and uses of calcium stearate appeared in 1984. Its uses include that of a flating agent in paint, a lubricant, plasticizer and leveler for paper coatings, suspending agent in paints, a release agent in plastic and other mouldings, a tabletting agent, a water repellant, and a cosmetic component, etc. Methods for the production of the stearate have been published, e.g. from calcium hydroxide, in the presence of zeolites, as dust free granules, in spherical particles (for use as a stabilizer in poly (vinyl chloride), and as an aqueous surfactant, viscosity stabilized dispersion. The drying of the soap has also been described. Calcium/zinc stearate binary mixtures have been prepared, and calcium stearate dihydrate.
