Process
Shellac is manufactured either by traditional Hand made process or comparatively modern machine made process. Hand made shellac is produced by blending Seedlac into long narrow cloth bag and then one end of the bag is heated over charcoal fire and the other end is attached to a windless and which is twisted slowly continuously. The heat produced by the charcoal fire melts the seedlac stuffed inside the cloth bag and is forced out through the cloth by pressure. The molten lac is scraped out and drawn into sheets or button manually and left to dry. This process requires considerable manual skill and long experience. The traditional Hand made Shellac grades are Lemon No.1, Lemon No.2, Standard One,etc and Hand Made Button grades include Kusmi Button Lac, Light Pure Button Lac etc. Hand made shellac is mostly exported to U.S.A. , Germany , Japan etc. The impurity varies from 0.75% to 1.5%.
