Applications of 12-HSA

12 HSA is an off-white solid fatty acid used to manufacture lithium and calcium based lubricating greases. When reacted with an ester, 12 HSA provides a hard finish for the automotive and small appliance industries.

  • 12 HSA is used in grease manufacture, plastics lubrication and as a raw material for the synthesis of more complex chemicals. It is used as a high hydroxyl castor based wax, as a wax ingredient.
  • 12-HSA based greases have excellent heat tolerance like the sodium greases and the water resistance of calcium greases.
  • The addition of 12 HSA enhances the overall performance with better texture, improved heat stability and improved dropping points.
  • 12 HSA soaps are used in mineral oil-based multipurpose greases making it possible for grease to fill the requirements of a variety of needs in the automotive and truck greases.
  • In cosmetics: 12 HSA may be used for gelling liquid petroleum to produce brilliance. It may be incorporated into cold creams and vanishing creams to give a jelly-like feeling.
  • In paints: 12-HSA is reacted with acrylic esters to produce hard, durable thermosetting polymers used in high-quality automotive, industrial appliance and metal decorative finishes.
  • In rubbers: 12-HSA functions as an activator and internal lubricant for natural and synthetic rubbers.
