Metal Soaps

Metal Soaps are compounds of long-chain fatty acids with metals of different valences. The most important Metal Soaps, in terms of quantity, are based on calcium, zinc, magnesium and aluminium. The main advantage is their wide range of properties for different fields of application. They improve gelation and can have a stabilising effect whilst they can also act as foam inhibition agents or acid scavenger. They are used as lubricant, release agent or as water repellent. Metal Soaps are available in different product forms such as fine powders, flakes, pastilles and granules.

Baerlocher offers high performance additives for diverse applications and industries. more
