Refined Cashew Nut Shell Liquid
Refined Cashew Nut Shell Liquid is obtained by further processing of the raw CNSL through the heating process
Refined CNSL has innumerable applications in polymer based industries such as friction linings, paints and varnishes, laminating resins, rubber compounding resins, cashew cements, polyurethane based polymers, surfactants, epoxy resins, foundry chemicals and intermediates for chemical industry
Refined CNSL undergoes all typical phenolic reactions. Its versatility in polymerization and chemicals modification and low cost find its application in the polymeric based industries . Refined CNSL properties have advantage over phenolic in certain applications such as impact resistance, flexibility, faster heat dissipation, anti corrosive, anti- microbial, insecticidal and resistant to alkali and acid solutions as well as mineral and fatty oils and various organic solvents.
