Zinc stearate Chemical Properties,Uses,Production


Zinc stearate is white light fine powder. Formula is ZN (C17H35COO) 2, molecular structure is  RCOOZnOOCR (R is alkyl group of industry stearate), it is combustible, specific gravity is 1.095, ignition point is 900℃, density is 1.095, melting point is 130℃, it has creamy feel. It is insoluble in water, alcohol, ether, soluble in hot ethanol, turpentine, benzene and other organic solvents and acids. Zinc stearate is heated and dissolved in organic solvent, when exposes cold, it becomes jelly, when meets strong acid, it can decompose into stearic acid and corresponding zinc. It has lubricity, hygroscopic, non-toxic, slightly irritating, non-polluting, non-hazardous properties. For zinc stearate is dissolved in benzene and calcium stearate is benzene-insoluble, it is possible to separate the calcium stearate and zinc stearate.
Zinc stearate is not soluble in polar solvents, but when be heated, it is high dissolved in aromatic compound agent chlorinated hydrocarbons. The main application areas are plastics and rubber industry, it is used as lubricant and release agent for excellent compatibility.


1. Zinc stearate can be used as rubber products soften lubricants, textiles lighting agent, PVC stabilizers.
2. It can be used as stabilizer in polyvinyl chloride plastics, rubber softener.
3. Zinc stearate can be used in the pharmaceutical industry, preparation of solidified oil and lubricants, it can be also used as paint drying agent. Non-toxic products for PVC and rubber processing, the synergy of calcium stearate and barium stearate can effectively improve PVC and rubber for light and heat stability, PVC processing amount is usually <1; it can be used for touch agent of rubber products, it can also be used as polymeric additive of PP, PE, PS, EPS and pencil manufacturing, it is generally used in the amount of 1 to 3 parts.

How to remove residual zinc stearate of aluminum surface processing

It is generally used polish manner to treat residual zinc stearate. It maybe damage the substrate when uses lure acid.

Product Features

Zinc stearate has good thermal stability, initial stage stainability is small, it has good light stability and it has synergy effect with calcium stearate and barium stearate, it has foam effect and it can be used as foaming aid in foam products, it can be used as the lubricant of cosmetic face powder.
Glue the pink plastic lubricants.
Zinc stearate is used as PVC stabilizers. When coordinates with barium-cadmium soap, it is mainly used in soft products, characteristic is that it can restrain initial coloration and avoid sulfide pollution. Zinc stearate can also be used styrene (polystyrene and ABC, SAN resins), phenolic resins, amino resins and plastics and other heat-curing polyester plasticizer, lubricant and release agent of transparent products. In the rubber industry, it can be used as rubber lubricants and anti-blocking agent, curing catalyst media activator.
It can be used as lighting agent of textile products.
It can be used as flatting agent in enamel paint industry.

Chemical Properties

white powder with fatty acid odour


Used in Rubber, Plastic, Poyester, Abbrasive, Coating, Printing Inks and PVC Industry.


zinc stearate is used in cosmetic formulations to increase adhesive properties. It is also used as a coloring agent. This is a mixture of the zinc salts of stearic and palmitic acids.


In tablet manufacture; in cosmetic and pharmaceutical powders and ointments; as a flatting and sanding agent in lacquers; as a drying lubricant and dusting agent for rubber; as a plastic mold releasing agent; as a waterproofing agent for concrete, rock wool, paper, textiles.

General Description

White, hydrophobic powder with a slight, characteristic odor. Mp: 130°C. Density: 1.1 g cm-3. Insoluble in water, ethyl alcohol and diethyl ether. Soluble in acids. Non-toxic. In technical grades, the percentage of zinc may vary according to the intended use. Products with less than the theoretical amount of zinc are more acidic.

Reactivity Profile

Zinc stearate is non-flammable but combustible. Incompatible with oxidizing agents, dilute acids. Emits acrid smoke and fumes of ZnO when heated to decomposition (Hazardous Chemicals Desk Reference, p. 865 (1987)).

Safety Profile

Poison by intratracheal route. Inhalation of zinc stearate has been reported as causing pulmonary fibrosis. A nuisance dust. Combustible when exposed to heat or flame. To fight fire, use water, foam, CO2, dry chemical. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of ZnO. See also ZINC COMPOUNDS.
