Application of Potassium Stearate

Potassium Octadecanoate, also called potassium stearate, is another name. It is a white, crystalline powder. The powder is insoluble when heated water is used. The aqueous solution has a strong alkalinity to litmus (phenolphthalein) and the ethanol solution has a slightly acidic pH. The reaction of potassium hydroxide and stearic acid can neutralize it. These surfactants are used often in the manufacturing of fiber softeners. It’s used as an anti-slip, graphene -modified glues, anticaking agents, or waterproof coils.

1 used for the preparation of a new kind of non-slip materials

The material’s anti-slip characteristics and wear resistance are excellent. Additionally, the ingredients in the formulation can be easily purchased. Simple and intuitive production procedures are used. A large, well-designed material formula is provided by the manufacturer. Material types include: Zinc oxide, short-fiber, water-based glu, photoinitiator (stearic Acid, magnesium Stearate), potassium stearate. Coupling agent and carbon fibre. These materials were calculated according to their mass percentage.

1, used to prepare a graphene -modified glue

To enhance the high-temperature resistance of cement, and to improve adhesion, graphene has been added to existing glue. The material for preparing the paste is calculated by parts by weight: 12-30 parts of polyurethane, 15-30 parts of chloroprene rubber, 15-30 parts of polyacrylate, 2-12 parts of graphene, triallyl isocyanuric acid 0.8-1.6 parts of ester, 1-6 pieces of ethylenediamine, 2-10 parts of n-butanol, 2-8 pieces of toluene, 0.8-3 parts of potassium stearate, 2-8 parts of polyvinylpyrrolidone, N- 1-5 parts of phenyl-b-naphthylamine;

This is the exact procedure:

Level I, graphene added to n–butanol or toluene. The ultrasonic diffusion is uniform to produce a mixed solution A.

Step 2, adding polyurethane, chloroprene rubber, and polyacrylate into the reactor, the temperature is raised to 80-105 ° C, the reaction is 1-3 hours, and then the mixed solution A and triallyl isocyanurate in the first step The acid ester, potassium stearate, polyvinylpyrrolidone, and N-phenyl-β-naphthylamine are sequentially added to the reactor, the reaction temperature is adjusted to 150-360 ° C, and the reaction is carried out for 2-5 hours to obtain a mixture B;

Step 3, The reaction described above is stopped. Temperature is reduced to 80oC. Ethylamine is then added to reactor. It is stirred well, and left to sit for one day. This will produce graphene, which can be modified with ethylenediamine.

3. Mixture of anti-caking compound for use with food-grade sodium chloride

A portion of edible salt can be made with potassium chloride, which is a way to lessen the likelihood of high blood pressure. However, when potassium chloride is stored and transported, moisture can lead to the powder’s surface dissolution and recrystallization. These pores form crystal bridges, which are then formed. Over time these crystals will combine with one another. Huge mass. Use of table salt can be affected by the loss or weakening in fluidity. A proper amount of anticaking agent should be used during manufacturing to prevent the formation of agglomeration.

This composite anticaking agent is used in food-grade potassium chlorineide. It’s non-toxic. D-mannitol contains potassium stearate as well as calcium dihydrogen pHe. Its specific gravity is 1.25-5: 0.01-0.4. D-mannitol (potassium stearate) and calcium dihydrogen is phosphate of good quality are considered food grade. The invention provides advantages over prior art.

4 – The preparation of high molecular polyethylene/polypropylene waterproofing membrane

Recent years have seen the introduction of polyethylene and polypropylene. A mixture of polypropylene, non-woven fabric, and polyethylene is what makes polypropylene. Polypropylene is a mixture of high-tech, modern technology and innovative technologies. An integrated layer of polymer polyethylene and polypropylene composite waterproof rolls material provides excellent friction coefficient, stability, good mechanical strength, low linear expansion coefficient, great chemical resistance, weather resistance and flexibility. This makes the product an ideal environmentally-friendly protection product in this new century. Below are the necessary steps for the production of the high molecular polyethylene polypropylene waterproofing Membranes.

Step 1: Weight the raw material according to these parts: 80-130 Parts polyethylene resin. 10-20 Parts talcum powder. 5-10Parts silica fume. 8-16 Parts potassium stearate. 8-18 pieces caroxylated styrenebutadiene, 10-20 part anti-aging material.

Step 2: Place talcum powder (silica fume), potassium stearate (carboxylated styrenebutadienelatex), and silica fume into a high speed mixer. Increase the temperature from 70 to 80 °C to stir, then turn up the heat to 95 to 100 °C. For 10-20 minutes, add a mixture of polyethylene resins and glass microbeads.

Third Step: Place the mixture on the cutting edge.

The advantages of the invention over prior art include: synergistic action by polyethylene, silica, talc and glass microbeads. In conjunction with the sequence described in the invention, the preparation of high molecular polyethylene/polypropylene waterproofing membrane performs superior to conventional high performance waterproofing membranes.
