We supply refined and deodorized castor oil to users in and out of Japan. We use the characteristics of castor oil, or diverse reactivity and high ricinoleic acid concentration, and produce industrial raw materials, paint additives and lubricant raw materials such as low-viscosity drying oil, wax, and sebacic acid. We produce polyurethane resins out of reaction between castor oil, widely used for insulation sealing or adhesives, and isocyanate. As one of Japan’s largest factories that use castor oil, we produce and deliver a variety of products for our customers using our wealth of technology.
[Company strength] We are dedicated to enhancing the quality of castor oil, which is a recyclable natural resource, and has maintained a stable supply for over 70 years since our foundation. The major component of castor oil is a triglyceride of ricinoleic acid and a special fatty acid with a double linked hydroxyl group. Especially outstanding characteristics are diverse reactivity and high ricinoleic acid concentration. Chemical reactions convert it to various industrial raw materials such as low-viscosity drying oil, wax, or sebacic acid. Reacting castor oil with isocyanate produces polyurethane resin. This is widely used in insulation sealing and adhesives because of its high safety and water resistance.
