12 Hydroxy Stearic Acid (12 HSA)
12 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.
