Relationship between low- and high-molecular-weight acids in complex calcium greases based on soaps of synthetic fatty acids

The properties of cCa greases based on both narrow and especially wide SFA fractions depend less on the molar ratio of the low- and high-molecular weight acids than for cCa greases based on soaps of individual carboxylic acids. The optimum molar ratio of HAc to the narrow SFA fractions is approximately 2∶1 while for wide C10–C20 SFA fractions it is 1.5∶ 1, which is lower than for individual carboxylic acids (3∶1).
A cCa soap of SFA fractions has a reduced thickening effect compared with the soaps of individual carboxylic acids. They surpass the greases thickened with the cCa soap of individual carboxylic acids in a number of properties (viscosity-temperature behavior, colloidal stability). Both wide and narrow SFA fractions are promising raw materials for preparing cCa greases.
