Castor oil
Castor is a perennial crop but is grown for economic purpose. The crop is cultivated around the world for its non-edible oilseed.

The presence of hydroxyl fatty acid known as ricinoleic acid makes castor oil unique among other seed oils. Castor oil is also distinguished from other vegetable oils by its high specific gravity and thickness thus making it amenable for a number of uses; soaps, lubricants, hydraulic and brake fluids, paints, dyes, coatings, inks,...

Castor meal, the byproduct of the oil extraction process is mainly used as fertiliser.


Fatty Acids
A fatty acid is a carboxylic acid with a long aliphatic tail (chain), which is either saturated or unsaturated. Most naturally occurring fatty acids have a chain of an even number of carbon atoms, from 4 to 28.

Fatty acids are usually derived from triglycerides or phospholipids. Fatty acids are important sources of fuel.


Glycerin
Vegetable glycerin, or glycerol, is a clear, odorless viscous liquid produced from plant oils, typically palm oil, soy, or coconut oil. Glycerol has three hydroxyl groups that are responsible for its solubility in water and its hygroscopic nature. The glycerol backbone is central to all lipids known as triglycerides.

Vegetable glycerin has a number of valuable applications that include pharmaceutical/cosmetic products, foods, and as a replacement for alcohol in herbal and botanical tinctures.

Vegetable glycerin is produced using an extraction process called hydrolysis. Glycerin used in food applications is USP grade or over 99% pure and has a sweet taste.


Lecithin
Lecithin is a generic term to designate any group of yellow-brownish fatty substances occurring in plant tissues composed of phosphoric acid, choline, fatty acids, glycerol, glycolipids, triglycerides, and phospholipids (e.g., phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, and phosphatidylinositol).

Lecithin can be extracted chemically (using hexane) or mechanically from readily available sources such as soy beans. It has low solubility in water.


Tocopherol
PTMC - Tocopherol is a mixture of 9% tocopherols in fatty acids. It is a viscous liquid with a typical smell and color.

Tocopherols are a class of chemical compounds of which many have vitamin E activity. It is a series of organic compounds consisting of various methylated phenols.

Tocopherols are fat-soluble antioxidants but also seem to have many other functions in the body.
This product is intended for pharmaceutical and cosmetic use.


Vegetable oils
Vegetable oil is a liquid extracted from the fruits or seeds of plants. These are triglyceride-based.

Vegetable oils are used in food, both in cooking and as supplements. Many oils, edible and otherwise, are also burned as fuel, such as in oil lamps and as a substitute for petroleum-based fuels. Some of the many other uses include wood finishing, oil painting, and skin care.

Following oils are being offered; sunflower, soybean, peanut, rapeseed and palm.

Calcium chloride
Calcium chloride (CaCl2) is the ionic compound of calcium and chlorine. It is a salt that behaves as a typical ionic halide, being solid at room temperature and highly soluble in water.

Common applications include brine for refrigeration plants, ice and dust control on roads, and desiccation.


Citric Acid
Citric Acid is used to acidify foods and beverages.


CPE
Chlorinated polyethylene (CPE) is a high molecular elastomeric material that produced by chlorinating HDPE.

It has excellent properties as flame-retardancy, weather-ability, lower-temperature flexibility, and high impact strength. It can be blended with other plastics and rubbers, and is mainly used at PVC impact modifier.


Phosphoric acid
Phosphoric acid (also known as orthophosphoric acid or phosphoric(V) acid) is a mineral (inorganic) acid having the chemical formula H3P O4.

In addition to being a chemical reagent, phosphoric acid has a wide variety of uses, including as a rust inhibitor, food additive, dental and orthop(a)edic etchant, electrolyte, flux, dispersing agent, industrial etchant, fertilizer feedstock, and component of home cleaning products.

Food-grade phosphoric acid (additive E338) is used to acidify foods and beverages.


TiO2
Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is the most widely used white pigment because of its brightness and very high refractive index.

The most important application areas of TiO2 are paints and varnishes as well as paper and plastics. Other pigment applications are printing inks, fibers, rubber, and cosmetic products.

TiO2 is also an effective opacifier in powder form, where it is employed as a pigment to provide whiteness and opacity to products such as paints, coatings, plastics, papers, and inks. In paint, it is often referred to as "the perfect white", "the whitest white", or other similar terms. Opacity is improved by optimal sizing of the titanium dioxide particles.
