Aluminum Stearate

Item No: PALS401

Aluminum stearate is a chemical compound composed of aluminum and stearic acid. It is an aluminum salt of stearic acid, which is a saturated fatty acid commonly found in animal and vegetable fats and oils. Aluminum stearate is a white, odorless powder that is insoluble in water but soluble in organic solvents such as oils and alcohols. Aluminum stearate is primarily used as a thickening agent, emulsifier, and stabilizer in various industries. It has lubricating properties, which make it useful in the production of cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and personal care products. It is often added to creams, lotions, ointments, and powders to improve their texture, consistency, and stability.


         Cosmetics and Personal Care Products: Acts as a thickening agent, emulsifier, and stabilizer in creams, lotions, ointments, and powders.

         PVC Plastics: Functions as a heat stabilizer and lubricant in the production of PVC plastics, preventing degradation and aiding in processing.

         Paint Industry: Serves as an anti-settling and drying agent in paints, preventing pigment settling and enhancing drying properties.

         Fabric Waterproofing: Used as a waterproofing agent for fabrics, improving water resistance for outdoor and water-repellent applications.

         Lubricants: Acts as a thickening agent in lubricating oils, enhancing viscosity, stability, and preventing oil separation.

         Varnishes and Lacquers: Functions as a thickening agent, improving consistency and film-forming properties of varnishes and lacquers.

         Petroleum Industry: Used as an anti-caking agent in petroleum products, preventing clumping and enhancing flow characteristics.
