  1. I only want experienced answers on this question. No I thinks or maybes. So only answer this if you really believe you know the answer.
    So the question is, is fanning powder 100% Zinc Stearate? I've heard this is true. But I don't know for sure. So if anybody knows please tell me. Oh and if it's not, what is it made out of exactly?
  2. Correct

    You are right, I get mine from a secret source in the university I attend it comes in 3gallon buckets. So I have plenty the best part is only cost me 5 dollars.:D
  3. Soweetness. So it is 100% Zinc Stearate!

    I did some research and I found out that Zinc Stearate is a KEY ingredient. So what I would like to know is does ANYBODY know what the exact ingredients of fanning powder are?
  5. I know it contains Talcom Powder... unless Zince Stearate is another term for talc...

  6. Zinc(II) n-octadeconoate
  7. Palmer, What does what you just said mean. Is it a formula? I don't get it?
  8. It doesnt make sense that its 100% to me because then why would different fanning pows be any diffrnt.
  9. I believe that zinc stearate is a focal ingredient to fanning powder, but not the only component. However, chemistry has never been my forte.

  10. Im not exactly sure what is IN fanning powder, I just know it works!!

    I just buy the stuff online. A little bottle will last for a long long time.
  11. Zinc Stearate is the only important ingredient in fanning powder. There are a few other ingredients, but Zinc is what makes fanning powder do its job.
  12. is it ok if i just add those zinc to my reguler powder to make a usable fanning powder?
    or do i have to use it just plain zinc stererate?
    where can i buy this?
    how much does it cost?
  13. Fanning powder is not hard to make. All I need is the Zinc stearate and *poof* fanning powder. I can order 1 pound of this stuff for about 10.93 plus shipping. Joy!
  14. what do u mean by *poof* fanning powder
    my friend told me that it's tru that it use zinc stearate, but he also said that it need other stuff to make hold any reaction that can couse by that thing, coz it'll make ur card stained (some yellowish stuff) in the surface of cards about 2 weeks later
    is it true?
  15. Hm...interesting. I'll have to look into that. I think your friend is probablly wrong but there is a possiblity. Then again all my information is based of the net, web sites, and people on the internet. Though one of my scources did happen to be an email form De'vo himself, so I think can trust him. And then again other scources I went to also seem reliable. The point is that until I order some Zinc Stearate powder and use it for myself I will not know for sure. I'm trusting my scources.

    Yeah, I'm in the middle of experimenting myself with this thing too.

    Guess I'll just wait for about a couple of weeks to start conclude any negative things.

    Overall, this zinc works so well for fanning powder.
  17. I use 100% Zinc S. and it works great I have been useing it for about 5 years now and i have not had any problems. I prefer it over any other fanning powder i have tried and I have bought quite a few different "brands" over the years.
  18. @AXIS
    that's a relief
    Zinc S only sold about $3 per kg in my country
