Acid Casein is produced by coagulation of protein from fresh
Acid Casein is used in chemical, light, woodworking, pulp and paper, perfume and pharmaceutical industries. Due to its high absorbent properties, it has wide application in the production of waterproof paints, dyes,
- Paint: Casein paint is a
fast-drying, water-solublemedium usually used by artists.
Casein-basedglues, formulated from casein, are popular for woodworking, as well as for aircraft. Casein glue is also used in transformer manufacturing (specifically transformer board) due to its oil permeability and by laminating fireproof doors and the labeling of bottles.
- Plastics and fibre: Some kinds of plastics are based on casein. In particular, galalith is well known for use in buttons. Fiber can be made from extruded casein. Lanital is a fabric made from casein fiber.
- Protein supplements: An attractive property of the casein molecule is its ability to form a gel or clot in the stomach, which makes it very efficient in nutrient supply.
Casein-derivedcompounds are used in tooth remineralization products to stabilize amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) and release the ACP onto tooth surfaces, where it can facilitate remineralization.
