Alberdingk® Castor Oil Low Acid 0.2 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, Alberdingk® Castor Oil Low Acid 0.2 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.
