Hydrogenated Castor Oil Powder

Hydrogenated castor oil powder is hard, brittle, solid castor wax which has a high-melting-point. Available in wax, powder or flakes, this grade of castor oil is derived after the safe hydrogenation process of refined castor oil. Hydrogenated castor oil flakes are a non-toxic, non-hazardous product which when melts turns into a clear transparent liquid. It is insoluble in water, limited solubility in the solvents, high applicability, stability and high-drop point. This form is used as a viscosity modifier to improve the grease and oil resistance. The dispersal level of hydrogenated castor oil flakes is good in powder coatings, hot-melt adhesives, elastomer, sealants etc.

Functional properties

  • Hydrogenated Castor Oil used as process aid supports the flow and levelling of the powder coating film.
  • Offers very good degassing characteristics.
  • Best surface modifier for powder coating application
  • High-performance additive for the powder coating industry.
  • Hydrogenated Castor Oil that improves surface appearance and shows excellent flow and levelling properties
  • Function as lubricants, release retardants, bulking agents, binders & mould release agents.
  • Free-flowing and easy dispersible, for high filled systems
  • For various applications in low-to-medium polar¬†systems at moderate temperatures
  • For use in solvent-free and high-solid formulations such as putties and sealants
  • Hydrogenated Castor Oil use as rheological additives for solvent-borne and solvent-free systems to be used as thixotropic agents, anti-settler and anti-sag additives in formulations of different polarities. The materials are available as micronized powders
