|Usage in PVC Compound
Calcium Stearate is widely used in Calendered and Plastisol Compounds. It has reasonable stability to heat & light, is non-toxic and therefore may be used in food applications. The Stabilizer is particularly effective in emulsion type polymers, due to having more % of Stearic Acid, it plays the role of lubericant also. The quantity used must be carefully watched, otherwise heat sealing & printing characteristics are affected. A synergistic effect is obtained with Zinc Stearate as a Stabilizer in FDA approved PVC processing.
