How do dry binders work?

Hi,

How exactly do dry binders (magnesium myristate, zinc stearate, etc) work to improve pressability in a pressed powder? 

Thank you.

    That's an interesting question. There are two or three different types of dry binders, and each of them work differently. I'll have to give this some thought.
