Aluminium Stearate - Overview
Aluminium Stearate is a white coloured powder, wax – like powder (metallic soap) with chemical formula Al(C17H35COO)3. It exhibits a relatively high solubility in hydrocarbon solvents (such as mineral spirits) when compared to other metallic stearates. It is insoluble in water, alcohol and ether; but when hot, it is readily soluble in benzene, acids and common solvents. Aluminium distearate is the most commonly used grade of aluminum stearate.
Aluminium stearate is used as a thickener in varnishes/lacquers, an anti-settling agent for pigmentation, as a pigment suspension, and an agent to improve water resistance and gloss. It is useful as a water repellent agent, a hydrophobic agent, and a waterproof agent in the paint industry.
