Synpro® CALCIUM STEARATE 114-40 is a mid-level ash, free flowing, non-caking powder product specifically designed for rigid PVC, Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP), Bulk Molding Compounds (BMC), Sheet Molding Compounds (SMC), and Phenolic applications. It is a multifunctional (external / internal) lubricant and fusion promoter for rigid PVC. It provides mold release and optimum viscosity control in Bulk / Sheet Molding Compounds. Additionally used in Polyolefins due to its low ash content which increases polymer miscibility while minimizing gel formation and plate-out / build-up on the extruder screen-packs during processing. Synpro® CALCIUM STEARATE 114-40 is listed in NSF / ANSI International Standard 14 Plastics Piping System Components and Related Materials. Additionally it is suitable for use in food packaging applications in accordance with many FDA Code of Regulations. It is available in tallow-based and vegetable-based formulas.
