Hydrogenated castor oil (HCO) or castor wax is a hard, brittle wax that
The HCO is
insoluble in water and most organic solvents, but it is soluble in hot
available in 50-pound paper bags or 2,200-pound super sacks.
hydrogenated castor oil is available in fiber drums.
produced by adding hydrogen in the presence of a nickel catalyst. It is
mainly used for coatings and greases where resistance to moisture, oils
and other petrochemical products is required.
hydrogenation process, the ricinoleic acid becomes fully saturated and
forms a viscous wax-like product with a high melting point of 86°C,
which makes HCO valuable in resin and polymer mixtures.
Hydrogenated castor oil used in the manufacture of multipurpose
Lithium/Calcium grease and high performance aviation grease.
use of HCO in greases was to improve texture and oxidative stability of
greases exposed to high sheer stress with little effect on structure or
Hydrogenated castor oil used for the manufacture of soaps & cosmetics.
It is used
as a mould release agent in the processing of plastics and rubbers.
It is also
used as a Rheological agent that provides thixotropy in paints,
coatings, inks, adhesives, sealants and numerous industrial composition.
It can be
used for the manufacture of hot melt adhesives used in packaging books,
binding footwear, carpet backing and in product assembly, Anti-tack and
slip additives for processing plastics .
It is used
in the manufacture of speciality chemicals for applications such as
metal working, plasticizers and textile auxiliaries in the form of
derivatives such as esters, ethoxylates, sulfates etc.
