HYDROGENE CASTOR OIL - HCO
Hydrogenated castor oil, also known as castor wax, is typically derived from castor bean (Ricinus communis), a liquid at room temperature and processed by adding hydrogen to make it more stable and raises its melting point so it is a solid at room temperature. It is odorless and insoluble in water. It is in the form of granules straws.
Historically, the Ancient Egyptians used castor oil as fuel for their lamps. Castor oil has also been used as a lubricant in machinery and aircraft engines and is also added to some paints, paints and varnishes. It is used as the raw material of soap in the production of lithium soap grease.
