It is white to yellowish white dry powder, slightly soluble in hot vegetable and mineral oils. Owing to our rich knowledge as well as professional workforce, we have achieved a noted position as a reliable organization engaged in offering Calcium Stearate. It reacts with strong acid to be decomposed into stearic acid and corresponding calcium salt. This derivative is used in pharmaceuticals and personal care products as a gelling and antitack agent. In addition, Calcium Stearate often serves as a tablet mold release agent in pharmaceutical industry. It is also used as an acid neutralizer, release agent, lubricant, and plastic colorant concentrator.
