Castor Oil - low acid number

Castor Oil low acid is a non-drying, refined oil won from the seeds of "Ricinus communis L." which is different to other vegetable oils due to its special molecular structure. It is specially treated to reach a low acid value.

Due to the low content of free fatty acids, Castor Oil Low Acid 0.7 is tailor made for the use as polyol in polyurethane systems with the demand for a long pot life time. Other application fields are industry paints based on ricinenealkyds and the plastics, fibre, textile and leather-auxiliaries industry. It is also used in the production of plasticizers, printing inks, soaps, wetting agents and lubricants.
