Lead Stearate

Introduce:

Lead StearatePb(C17H35COO)2 and Dibasic Lead Stearate, 2PbO, Pb(C17H35COO)2 arebasic lead soap of commercial stearic acid. These are versatile combinedlubricants and heat stabilizers for PVC. They have wide application as alubricant for Plasticised PVC compounds, particularly cable covering. For rigidPVC applications, it is necessary to use a well-balanced lubricant system.

Lead Stearate is primarily of interest as alubricant in PVC compound since it has only moderate heat stabilizer propertieswhen used alone. Lead Stearate acts as an efficient lubricant for many suchprocesses.

It is widely used as lubricant, slipping agent,heat-stabilizer, mould releasing agent and accelerant in plastic, rubber, paintand ink industry etc.

INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS


1. PLASTICIZED PVC COMPOUNDS

Lead Stearate along with other PVC Stabilizershas a wide application as a lubricant for Plasticized PVC compounds


2.CABLE COVERING

Electrical cables whose conductors are protectedfrom moisture and mechanical damage by a lead sheath and covering.

 

3. USEDAS LUBRICANTS

Lubricants are essential for the majority of PVCfabrication methods by the very nature of the polymer. Lead Stearate acts as anefficient lubricant for many such processes.
