Vicchem 707 is a polymerised hydroxy fatty acid (Polymerised Ricinoleic Acid) that can be formulated with a wide range of oils, surfactants and oil soluble materials.
COMMON AND OTHER NAMES
Polymerised Ricinoleic Acid
VICCHEM 707 is a viscous amber
liquid with a fatty odour.
VICCHEM 707TM as a polymerised hydroxy fatty acid has excellent viscosity
improving powers and can be easily formulated with a wide range of oils,
surfactants and oil soluble materials. VICCHEM 707TM is oxidatively stable,
nonvolatile and readily biodegradable. For these reasons VICCHEM 707TM is an
excellent alternative to petrochemicals in formulations.
Metal working : Lubricants, viscosity modifier
Intermediate: Polyol esters
Low toxicity means that it poses a low health and safety risk for users.
Readily Biodegradable means that it will have a low environmental impact.
Excellent viscosity properties can provide formulators with replacements for
High lubricity and low volatility characteristics can provide the properties required
of oily bases in specialised lubricant products.
