12 -Hydroxy stearic acid – Flakes / Powder

12 Hydroxy Stearic Acid (12 HSA)

12_hydroxy_stearic_acid_flake_powder_aura_refoils_india_112 Hydroxystearic Acid (12 HSA) is an off-white, high melting solid fatty acid produced by hydrolysis of Hydrogenated Castor Oilwith a melt point of approximately 77°C. It is insoluble in water. 12 HSA is non-toxic & non-harzardous, partially soluble in number of organic solvents and insoluble in water.

12 HSA is used in production of lithium and calcium based lubricating greases, synthesis for complex chemicals.

When it is reacted with an ester, 12HSA provides a hard finish for the automotive and small appliance industries.

Applications:

  • Lubricating Greases
  • Chemical industry
  • Automobile Industry
  • Small Appliances Industry
