It is insoluble in polar solvents (such as alcohols and ethers), but it is soluble in aromatic hydrocarbons (such as benzene) and chlorinated hydrocarbons after heating. It is the most powerful release agent of all metal soaps. It contains no electrolytes and is hydrophobic. Its main application field is in the plastics and rubber industries as a release agent and easy-to-inject lubricant.
