Seedlac is a natural resin that is obtained from the secretions of the tiny lac insect Laccifer Lacca. The insects are cultivated on selected host trees. The insect secretions form a cocoon on the twigs of the trees which are then harvested and brought to our factory as Sticklac. After processing we extract the natural resin known as Seedlac.
Seedlac raw material supplied from our factory to customers is formulated to obtain Shellac, Lac wax and Aleuritic Acid which have multiple uses in a range of industries.
