Effective date : The compositions are blends of triglycerides and wax esters derived from predominantly C unsaturated acids and C saturated alcohols. It would therefore be desirable to have available a synthetic sperm oil composition having essentially the same physical characteristics and which could be substituted for the natural product, per se, and in its sulfurized form, including forms also containing chlorine and phosphorous. Sperm oil is substantially different from other natural oils and its unique characteristics make it useful as a lubricant under conditions where other lubricants fail, such as where extreme heat and pressure are encountered. Sperm oil is nondrying and not subject to gum formation and rancidity.

The lipid fraction of the deep water fish species orange roughy Hoplostetbus atlanticus , black oreo Allocyttus sp. The component acids and alcohols of the wax ester fraction were analyzed by gas liquid chromatography and compared with those of jojoba and sperm whale oils. Orange roughy oil was refined and deodorized and its chemical, physical and mechanical properties were determined. Hydrogenation of orange roughy oil produced a range of white crystalline waxes with melting points between 34 and 66 C.
