Overview of Lithium 12-Hydroxystearate Grease

Lithium 12-hydroxystearate (C18H35LiO3) is a compound belonging to the lithium soap group. In chemistry, "soap" refers to salts of fatty acids. Lithium 12-hydroxystearate is a white solid. Lithium soap is an important ingredient in many greases. Lithium 12-hydroxystearate is a fatty acid salt commonly referred to as "lithium soap". It is the most common soap used to stabilize and thicken greases. Lithium is generally preferable to soaps containing other counterweight ions such as sodium, calcium, and barium.


Lithium-based grease is made from natural fatty acid (stearic acid or 12-hydroxystearic acid) lithium soap, thickened medium-viscosity mineral lubricating oil or synthetic lubricating oil, while synthetic lithium-based grease is made of synthetic Made of fatty acid lithium soap. The feedstock is a thickened medium viscosity mineral oil.

Lithium 12-hydroxystearate is a white powdery industrial product, which can be prepared by the direct reaction of 12-hydroxystearic acid and equimolar lithium hydroxide monohydrate. Can be used to formulate various greases.

Application of lithium 12-hydroxystearate lithium base grease

Lithium 12-hydroxystearate is a fatty acid salt, commonly known as "lithium soap", most commonly used to stabilize and thicken soap oils. Lithium is generally preferred over soaps containing other counter ions such as sodium, calcium and barium.

Lithium 12-hydroxystearate greases are widely used in lubricating oils, stabilizers, decolorizers and thickeners. Lithium-based greases: especially those thickened with lithium 12-hydroxystearate soap. After adding antioxidants, rust inhibitors and extreme pressure agents, it becomes a multi-purpose grease. Alternative long-life general purpose greases calcium and sodium based greases are used for bearing lubrication of aircraft, automobiles, tanks, machine tools and various mechanical equipment.

Lithium 12-hydroxystearate is widely regarded as the preferred fatty acid in lithium-based grease thickeners. Fatty acids are also used as thickeners for calcium-based greases. Fats prepared with this acid usually have a smooth buttery texture. Calcium 12-hydroxystearate grease is one of the most common anhydrous calcium-based greases. It has a drop point of about 275 to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and a maximum usable temperature of about 230 degrees Fahrenheit, with average performance in low temperatures.

Lithium composite technology at home and abroad has achieved rapid development in my country in the 1990s. Industrial production is mainly composed of lithium salts containing C9-C10 dibasic acid, boric acid or salicylic acid and 12-hydroxystearate lithium, any of which is a binary or ternary compound grease. To the base oil is added lithium 12-hydroxystearate, lithium azelaate or lithium sebacate, as well as lithium borate and lithium salicylate.
