Lead Stearate

lead-stearate

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

LS is primarily of interest as a lubricant in PVC compound since it has only moderate heat stabilizer properties when used alone. It is generally used in conjunction with other stabilizers.

Lubricants are essential for the majority of PVC fabrication methods by the very nature of the polymer. Lead Stearate acts as an efficient lubricant for many such processes.

Industrial Applications

Used as Lubricants

Lubricants are essential for the majority of PVC fabrication methods by the very nature of the polymer. Lead Stearate acts as an efficient lubricant for many such processes.

Mixtures of Dibasic Lead Stearate with Lead Stearate, Barium or Cadmium Stearates will act as an efficient stabilizer system for certain applications.

LS has wide application as a lubricant for Plasticized PVC’s and Cable coverings.
