Aluminum Stearate (Al(Cl8H35O2)3) is a surface-active organo-metallic compound.
3.0-4.0 (5% dispersion)
= 7% @ (0.285 kg/m3)
Aluminium Stearate is generally used as a defoamer in dispersed or gel-chemical mud systems.
Aluminum Stearate is not water soluble, it is recommended to pre-mix the aluminum stearate
in mineral oil (concentration approximately 20.0-25.0 kg in 20 liters of mineral oil) prior to
adding it directly to the mud active system.
MIXING AND HANDLING
Aluminum Stearate should be stored in a dry, cool environment.
Some dust will occur while mixing. Care should be taken to avoid contact with the eyes. If
contact is made, rinse the eyes for five to fifteen minutes with water. It is advisable to use a
dust mask and eye protection while mixing all powdered products.
