When hydrogen is added to Castor Oil in the presence of a nickel catalyst, the resultant oil, called Hydrogenated Castor Oil, is transformed into a hard, brittle wax with a melt point of approximately 85-86 degrees Centigrade. This wax is extremely insoluble and is therefore well suited for products needing resistance to water, oils, petroleum and petroleum derivatives.
HCO is available as flakes or powder which melts to a clear transparent liquid. It is a non-toxic, non-hazardous material.
Hydrogenated castor oil is used in manufacturing of greases, but it may also be used in a paper coating for food packaging. The product can be available with several different melting points, or in beaded or powdered form. Partially Hydrogenated castor oil is used in cosmetic formulations such as lipsticks and stick deodorants.
Hydrogenated Castor Oil finds a number of diversified uses due to its unique combination of physico-chemical properties.
In the manufacture of multipurpose Lithium/Calcium grease and high performance aviation grease.In the manufacture of soaps & cosmetics,as mould release agent in the processing of plastics and rubbers.
As a component of specialty wax blends like pencils, crayons, lipsticks and anti-deodorant sticks.In the manufacture of hot-melt coatings and sealant requiring resistance to water.As a coating agent for paper & as anti-foaming agent.
