Barium stearate is a chemical compound composed of barium cations (Ba2+) and stearate anions. It is the barium salt of stearic acid, which is a long-chain saturated fatty acid. Barium stearate is a white, odorless powder or solid at room temperature. It has various applications due to its unique properties. An excellent heat stabilizer/lubricant for plasticized and rigid PVC. also, its combination with zinc, cadmium and lead stearates has a very good stabilization effect and due to waterproofing and lubrication properties is used for metalworking plastics, rubber, waxes and various greases and can be used for thermal and optical stability in plastics.
