#1 Castor Oil
Castor oil is an extremely versatile material that has served mankind in a number of ways for thousands of years. The many castor oil CASE applications include use as a varnish and coating additive, a viscosity modifier and emulsifier in industrial sealants as well as a carrier of dyes and pigments in paints, inks and coatings. We offer #1 castor oil in various forms including pale pressed, dehydrated, low moisture and low AV. Packaging options include drums, isotanks, bulk, IBCs and five-gallon pails.
Magnesium stearate is the product of a reaction between magnesium sulfate and sodium stearate. Also known as magnesium salt, magnesium stearate serves as an additive in many types of industrial products. Magnesium stearate CASE applications include being used as a lubricant and neutralizer.
Acme-Hardesty offers a plant-based magnesium stearate product that is free of common allergens such as nuts, eggs, fish and dairy. We also package magnesium stearate in bags with a shelf life of two years from the date of manufacture.
Sebacic acid is a castor oil derivative that is also known as octanedicarboxylic acid or decanedioic acid. CASE uses of sebacic acid include a paint and coating additive to serve as an intermediate and for the polyester polyols used to produce hot metal adhesives. We sell sebacic acid in a white granular powder form with a minimum purity of 99.5 percent and packaged in bags and super-sacks.
Also known as zinc soap, zinc stearate is a fatty acid that is insoluble in polar solvents and is also an excellent water repellent. We sell tallow- and veg-based zinc stearate for use in numerous CASE applications such as a lubricant aid in industrial sealants for sanding and as a paint and coating additive where it acts as a flatting agent. Our zinc stearate comes packaged in bags with a shelf life of two years from the date of manufacture.
