Stearic acid amide

​Stearic acid amide (Stearamide) can be used in various applications including resins and rubber as well as polyolefin films and thermal paper coatings. It provides several functions such as slip additive, lubricant, release additive, dispersant, anti-block additive and sensitizer in thermal paper coatings.

Stearamide is based on fatty saturated straight chain monocarboxylic acid derived from naturally occurring vegetable oils.

Thermal Paper

Stearamide was one of the first sensitizers used in thermal paper. Nowadays its low cost makes it attractive as a supplementary sensitizer, i.e. used in combination with other sensitizer.

Available in different types with varying C-18 content from 50% up to 90%

Polyolefin Films

Stearamide slip additives effectively reduce co-efficient of friction on film surface and are used as slip, anti-block and mould release agents. These additives are suitable for PP, PE and EVA.
