Castor Oil, blown
Gained oil by cold pressing of the semen of the castor shrub (Ricinus communis). As a result of auto-oxidation by blowing in 100-150°C hot air the oil gets viscous, good drying and weather resistant.
Blown Castor Oil is a pale yellow viscous
liquid with liminal, characteristic odour. Mixable
with chloroform, ethanol, ether, anhydrous acetic acid, not readily
soluble in petroleum ether.
