Scientists rely on various tools to develop adhesives that can help them meet new customer requirements. Recent industry product demands including zero VOC, label-friendly, easy of handling, durability, and sustainability, are very challenging items to satisfy. Cardolite innovative CNSL-based technology is offering solutions that allow formulators to overcome these challenges.
Cashew NutShell Liquid renewable technology does not interfere with the food chain. CNSL-based epoxy curing agents, known as phenalkamines and phenalkamides, are best suited for structural adhesives that are environmentally-friendly while delivering fast strength development at adverse conditions, durability under water, and chemical or high/low temperature exposure resistance. CNSL-based epoxy modifiers and diluents are also excellent solutions for improving hydrophobicity, bond strength, and flexibility of adhesive systems.
