What is Potassium Oleate?

Potassium oleate is usually prepared in aqueous stage by saponification reaction of animal oil or vegetable oil including oleic acid part. Potassium oleate products vary in high quality and web content of potassium oleate, and also there are potassium oleate solution (potassium oleate material is less than 30%) which is colorless to light yellow thick fluid, and pasty potassium oleate (potassium oleate web content is 50%) is light yellow to light brown sticky silk fluid, paste potassium oleate (potassium oleate content is 70%-92%) is light yellow soft paste solid and also potassium oleate particles (potassium oleate content is higher than 95%) is light yellow fine-grained particles.
Potassium oleate is a kind of potassium catalyst, which is the trimerization stimulant of polyurethane stiff polyisocyanurate, and also is widely made use of in PIR foam system of polyurethane insulation board. In addition, potassium oleate is additionally extensively used in the fields of rubber emulsifier, foaming agent, release agent, cleaning representative, lubricating substance, fiber conditioner and also surfactant. Potassium oleate option has the negative aspects of reduced effective web content, inconvenient transport, storage, and also packaging, and also due to its big water material, some high-concentration potassium oleate solutions often require to add viscosity reducers, dispersants and also other additives throughout usage. The field is more limited; Potassium Oleate Paste and Potassium Oleate Paste consist of higher active ingredients. Nevertheless, the thickness is high, and also the potassium oleate in the product is easy to agglomerate under low temperature conditions, so there are many troubles in application, such as tough to understand the amount throughout use, and bothersome dental filling as well as taking.
Compared with the above 2, high-purity potassium oleate is a grainy strong, which will certainly bring great comfort in terms of storage space, packaging and transportation, and also the quantity taken during usage. Yet at present, the refining and also filtration of solid potassium oleate frequently require to adopt the setting of low temperature level as well as decompression to remove water. This method has lengthy production cycle, high energy consumption, high expense and fantastic problem to prepare. Consequently, it is very needed to research study and establish the preparation innovation of solid potassium oleate.

Potassium Oleate Uses

  1. Potassium oleate is made use of as an emulsifier in lots of fluid soaps, face cleansers, beard waxes, body cleans and also hair perms. Emulsifiers imitate surfactants and also lower the surface area tension of a fluid.
  2. Potassium oleate is made use of as an emulsifier and also cleaning agent.
  3. Potassium oleate is a type of potassium driver, which is extensively utilized in polyisocyanate foam reaction.
  4. Potassium oleate fluid as well as solid are mostly used as catalysts for polyisohydrourate reaction in polyurethane foam, and can likewise be utilized as emulsifiers, frothing representatives, cleaning up agents, lubricating substances as well as surfactants.

Application of Potassium Oleate

Potassium oleate can be used as lubricant, detergent, emulsifier, antirust agent, etc.; it can also be used in hand sanitizer, latex, lubricating cutting oil, paint remover, textile, leather, etc. Its application examples are as follows:
1. Prepare a sort of antifungal agent for finishings, including triethanolamine, tea polyphenols, benzotriazole, potassium oleate, bactericide, hydrogen peroxide, water, and the mass parts of each component are: triethanolamine 6- 9. Tea polyphenols 1-3, benzotriazoles 5-7, potassium oleate 3-8, fungicides 2-6, hydrogen peroxide 5-7, water 10-14. Preferably, the antifungal agent for coverings is defined because: the parts by mass of the components of the antifungal agent for finishings are: triethanolamine 6, tea polyphenol 2, benzotriazole 7, potassium oleate 7. Fungicide 5, hydrogen peroxide 5, water 12.
2. Preparation of multi-functional microemulsion gasoline and diesel combustion aids. It is composed of auxiliary soft water, C5-9 fatty alcohol, oleic acid, sodium hydroxide, isopropanolamine and potassium oleate, and is characterized in that the weight ratio of the above-mentioned various components is 20-35% of auxiliary soft water; C5 -9 fatty alcohol 20-30%; oleic acid 40-50%; sodium hydroxide 1-2%; isopropanolamine 2-3%; potassium oleate 1-2%.
Each component is fully stirred and mixed in a container to prepare a multi-functional micro-emulsified gasoline and diesel combustion aid. The multi-functional microemulsion gasoline and diesel combustion aid has the characteristics of high stability, wide applicability, energy saving, environmental protection and non-corrosiveness. At room temperature, the weight ratio of combustion improver to gasoline or diesel is 15% to 85%, and the micro-emulsion gasoline or diesel composite fuel is made. It has a transparent appearance, good stability and high thermal efficiency, and can be widely used in gasoline. Diesel internal combustion engines are used as environmentally friendly fuels.
3. Preparation of anionic viscoelastic surfactant-based gels. Based on the viscoelastic surfactant system (VES.Y) formed by potassium oleate and potassium chloride, in VES. Add cross-linking agent (N,N-methylenebisacrylamide) and initiator to Y, under the protection of N gas, keep the temperature at 60°C for 24 h, and polymerize to obtain anionic viscoelastic surfactant gel (VES. G). To VES. G and VES. The performance of Y system, such as temperature resistance, organic hydrocarbon resistance, gel breaking and damage to reservoir, was evaluated indoors.
The results showed that VES. The temperature resistance and shear resistance of the G system have been greatly improved, and the sensitivity to organic hydrocarbons has been significantly weakened. After breaking the gel, VES. G system performance and VES. The Y system is basically the same; and it is confirmed by the core flow experiment, VES. The G system has no damage to the reservoir, and the permeability retention rate is >99%.

Preparation of Potassium Oleate

A kind of preparation approach of solid powdery potassium oleate, its concrete actions are:
1) React pasty oleic acid and also potassium hydroxide in the water phase to prepare a potassium oleate solution with a mass material of 10% -20%, and prepare an option with a mass material of 40% by concentration at 70-80 ° C -60% flowable thick potassium oleate;
2) Mix urea and alcohol remedy and stir under the condition of 70-90 ° C, and form a warm saturated urea-alcohol service after the urea is entirely liquified;
3) Add the thick potassium oleate into the urea-alcohol service under warmth preservation, stir well to develop a consistent transparent service, keep mixing, cool down the solution to -5 -0 ° C, and also maintain the reduced temperature level for 1-3 hours to speed up the strong potassium oleate, filter the precipitated tough potassium oleate powder (filter with fine gauze), as well as completely dry the solid material with completely dry cold air to get the ended up solid powder potassium oleate.
