12-hydroxystearic acid

12-hydroxystearic acid is a fatty acid based on castor oil. 12-Hydroxystearic acid can be used in lubricants to improve lubricity and reduce friction and wear. 12-Hydroxystearic acid can also be used as a plasticiser and lubricant in plastics to improve the processability of plastics.

CO2 neutral available:

For this purpose, we first developed a product carbon footprint (PCF), which details the emissions on a "cradle to gate" basis. In addition, we reduce emissions to a minimum through efficient logistics and intelligent warehouse locations in Europe. We then compensate for the remaining unavoidable emissions through Gold Standard CO2 certificates.
