Zinc Laurate is a white powder with a slightly waxy odor. It is used as a dry binder in the personal care and cosmetics industry. The strong cohesive properties of dry binders make them easier to disperse allowing the formulator to decrease the amount of lipids. They are also hydrophobic, and simplify the pressing of powders. STRUKTOL Zinc Laurate is used as an activator for thiazoles, thiurams and dithicarbomates by supplying fatty acid and soluble zinc. STRUKTOL Zinc Laurate produces better physical properties with low natural blends. Acting as a plasticizer in natural rubber, STRUKTOL Zinc Laurate offers a higher degree of solubility in rubber than stearic acid, therefore less blooming. Less blooming results in better tack properties, such as in truck tire and tank lining compounds. STRUKTOL Zinc Laurate is sanctioned for use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in a number of applications, listed in the following sections of Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations: 175.105 (Adhesives) 177.2600 (Rubber articles, intended for repeated use), 178.3910 (Surface lubricants used in the manufacture of metallic articles). Zinc Laurate is used as cosmetic additive.
