Shellac - Processed Versatile Lac Golden Kusmi

Shellac is a natural bio adhesive polymer and is chemically similar to synthetic polymers, and thus can be considered a natural form of plastic. It can be turned into a molding compound when mixed with wood flour and molded under heat and pressure methods, so it can also be classified as thermoplastic.

Shellac is the source of Aleuritic acid.Shellac, edible, is used as a glazing agent on pills and candies, such as "Skittles" (until 2009) in the form of pharmaceutical glaze (or, confectioner's glaze). Because of its acidic properties (resisting stomach acids), shellac-coated pills may be used for a timed enteric or colonic release. Shellac is used as a 'wax' coating on citrus fruit to prolong its shelf/storage life. It is also used to replace the natural wax of the apple, which is removed during the cleaning process. When used for this purpose, it has the food additive E number E904.

Though we have started cultivation lately than many others at The Indian Nursery, our proficiency in production of best quality shellac has made us most trusted name in the lac industry. This Golden Kusmi & Semialata Shellac encompasses both high quality and excellent performance.

Shellac is an odour and stain blocker and so is often used as the base of "solves all problems" primers. Shellac-based primers are an effective sealant to control odours associated with fire damage.
