Methyl Ricinoleate

APPLICATIONS  OF METHYL RICINOLEATE

A ) SYNTHETIC LUBRICANTS

BRAKE FLUID : It can replace diacetone alcohol with advantage – being more stable & having higher flash point.

  1. Methyl Ester of Castor Oil is used in place of Castor Oil in the production of hydraulic fluids.
  2. Methyl Ricinoleate is found to be of use in ethyl  cellulose, nitrile rubber, nitrous and polyvinyl butyral lacquers.
  3. Methyl Ricinoleate ( methyl ester of ricinoleic acid, ricinoleic acid methyl ester ) is used in several lubricating formulations, cutting oils and gear oils, motor fuels, cylinder lubricants etc
  4. Methyl Ricinoleate ( methyl ester of ricinoleic acid, ricinoleic acid methyl ester )delivers additional benefits of anti- rusting and corrosion.
 
B ) PLASTICIZER
  1. Epoxy Resin Systems
  2. Natural and Synthetic Rubber Polymers – It confers good low temperature properties & products low – durometer stocks.It also confers good electrical properties.
  3. Phenol- Formaldehyde molding resins.
 
C ) TEXTILES :

It finds use as a component of Yarn dressing as softners to eliminate pasting process.
