Specifically, Material A is sodium stearate belonging to lubricating component, which is generally used for the synthesis of laundry soap and lubricant [33-36]; moreover, sodium stearate considerably reduces the wear of steel construction and hot water or alcohol dissolves it well [37].
Polymer emulsion is done by the process of emulsion polymerization in which the emulsification of a monomer is done in the presence of water and a surfactant, especially sodium stearate. The most common monomers used in the process of emulsion polymerization are styrene, acrylonitrile, butadiene, acrylate ester and methacrylate ester.
