Global lithium stearate powder market trend 2022-2030 What is Lithium Stearate? by Newsstrikevector

John Albanese, leader of the Australian Labor Party, was sworn in as Australia's new prime minister. After his victory, Albanese said he would "make a big change" in the country's climate policy.  

"We now have an opportunity to end the 'climate wars' in Australia," he said.  "Australian businesses understand that doing the right thing on climate is good for our economy and good for jobs, and I hope Australia will join the global effort on climate change," Albanese said Australia would engage with other countries to change policies when it came to tackling climate change.  

In addition, Albanese’s Labor Party has proposed a more ambitious plan to cut emissions by 43 percent from 2005 levels by 2030, the report said. However, Labor is not currently planning to phase out coal use or halt new coal mining projects.  

The climate issue was a major concern of voters in Australia's general election. Mr. Morrison, the former prime minister, was criticized for failing to direct the response to repeated bushfires in 2019 and 2020.

SBS has reported that According to the latest Climate Change Performance Index of 64 countries released at the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), Australia's climate policy ranks at the bottom of all countries, and is one of the world's worst performers in three aspects of emissions, renewable energy, and energy use.  Australia ranks 52nd in renewable energy, 54th in energy use, and 56th in emissions.  

It is predicted that the prices of many other commodities like the lithium stearate powder would increase in the next few days.

What is lithium stearate?
Lithium stearate, C17H35COOLi, is a lithium salt of stearic acid and is one of the metal soaps. This colorless, almost insoluble powder in water and alcohol, with a melting point of 220°C, is mainly used in the production of greases and waxes from oils. The resulting grease is thermally stable at temperatures up to about 150°C and remains lubricated as low as -20°C. Until the success of lithium-ion batteries, this is the largest quantitative application of lithium metal. 
Small amounts of lithium stearate are also used to make pencils. The compound has extremely low toxicity when administered orally, which is why it is also used in cosmetics. 
 
What is lithium stearate used for? 
It is used as a general-purpose grease to provide high water resistance. Because it can be applied at both high and low temperatures, lithium stearate is used in many industries, from the automotive industry to the heavy machinery industry and even the aerospace industry.  As a general-purpose grease, lithium stearate is also used as a stabilizer in the cosmetic and plastics industries. Because of its properties, the compound can also be used as a corrosion inhibitor in petroleum. 
 
The following are the application areas of lithium stearate: 
It can be used as a thickener for natural synthetic oils. 
It facilitates the manufacture of lightweight metal molds. 
It is a fine, thicker grease, well suited for high-temperature applications. 
It can improve the melting point and enhance the elasticity of microcrystalline wax. 
Because lithium stearate has a higher melting point than conventional sodium and potassium soaps (22°C compared to 140°C), it is more resistant to loss of consistency. 
It has amazing rust and corrosion resistance. 
Although it's water-repellent, lithium stearate works better in other types of environments. 
This is a great sealant.
 
What is lithium grease? 
Lithium grease was invented in the early 1940s. It's made from lithium hydroxide reacting with fatty acids. Modern lithium soaps (thickeners) consist of 12HSA (12-hydroxystearic acid, or triglyceride) and lithium hydroxide monohydrate in a base liquid. 
Grease is one of the oldest lubricants used by humans, dating back to 1400BC. It reduces friction, is waterproof, and provides a seal. More than 90% of bearings use grease as a lubricant.
The base oil may be mineral oil or synthetic fluid, or a mixture of either or both. Many fats and fatty acids are suitable for making lithium soap. However, 12HSA and HCO (hydrogenated castor oil) are preferred. Lithium 12-hydroxy stearate grease is probably the best multi-purpose grease ever made.
Lithium grease has excellent water resistance (not as good as calcium), excellent mechanical or shear stability, excellent thermal stability, and excellent storage stability. As well as a continuous operating temperature of 130°C (266°F) and a drop point of 190-200°C. It is the most favored bearing grease in almost all industrial fields.
