MAY 17, 2018 – ‘’Bio-based Material of the Year 2018’’ – NX-2026 Awarded Silver Medal

We are very proud to share that NX-2026 was chosen as the second place winner for the award “Bio-based Material of the Year 2018” at the International Conference on Bio-based Materials organized by the Nova Institute (Germany). NX-2026 is an ultra-high purity 3-pentadeca-dienyl-phenol recently developed by Cardolite through advanced proprietary process technology. 3-pentadeca-dienyl-phenol is the main component distilled from cashew nutshell liquid, a renewable and non-edible resin extracted from the honeycomb structure of the cashew nut. NX-2026 has been successfully introduced to the coating and adhesive markets as a non-toxic isocyanate (NCO) blocking agent that is a suitable replacement for petrochemical phenols. NCO systems blocked with NX-2026 provide lower viscosity and deblocking temperature than equivalent systems blocked with phenols. Moreover, NX-2026 blocked NCO prepolymers can be used in 2K epoxy systems to improve bond and T-peel strengths while maintaining good cure properties.
