Zinc or calcium stearate was used as well, in some cases, because the stearates are more effective than the talc, and therefore less material was required; but the process is still extremely dusty.
This study aims to determine the effect of calcium stearate on the quality of 20, 30, and 40 MPa concrete with regard to the infiltration of chloride ions.
The reduction of stick-slip phenomena and the suppression of gross melt fracture in the case of composites containing the presence of mCaC[O.sub.3] may be attributed to the presence of calcium stearate which acts as a slippage agent and increases slip velocity.
For the first time, we recently found a label that specifies that the calcium stearate is vegetable-based:
Founded in 1981, Chemical Associates is a marketer, manufacturer, and distributor of oleochemicals, including tall oil fatty acids, oleic acids, stearic acids, fractionated acids, fatty alcohols, polyunsaturated fatty acids, coconut fatty acids, castor derivatives, methyl esters, calcium stearate, metallic stearates, and glycerine, many of which are based on renewable and sustainable resources.
Other compound ingredients such as zinc oxide, stearic acid, sulphur, calcium stearate and poly-2,2,4-trimethyl-1,2-dihydroquinoline (TMQ) were of commercial grades and used without purification.
This unique system is considered a "one pack" eliminating the need for any other lubes including calcium stearate.
The material consists of 35-80 wt% of a fibrous inorganic filler such as basic magnesium sulfate, 1-45 wt% of an olefin polymer, 5-45 wt% of an elastomer, and 0.3-10.0 wt% of a lubricant such as calcium stearate. The material is blended by kneading the melt and molding the kneaded product.
