Blown Castor Oil
Blown castor oil is a honey-golden vicious liquid derived after oxidative polymerization. Blown castor oil is also known as oxidized castor oil or polymerized castor oil. It is prepared by blowing air or oxygen into castor oil at various temperatures of 80-1300C. Blown castor oil manufacturer through the process of oxidative polymerization of castor oil yields products with increased viscosities, increased compatibility with various resins, and improved adequacy to wet and disperse pigments while imparting solvent and abrasion resistance to lacquer systems. With this process, lacquer systems get highly resistant to weather conditions and stay unaffected by industrial emissions. Just like any other castor oil product or derivatives, Blown castor oil is used for many applications. It is polymerized to plasticize a variety of resins in adhesive, heat-set inks, and sealant systems and as oil and solvent-resistant for plug-valve lubricant base.
