Cardolite will be launching new bio-based products for epoxy and polyurethane coatings suitable for flooring and metal corrosion protection at the American Coatings Show.
New NX-8402 waterborne curing agent for epoxy systems provides excellent adhesion and corrosion protection to multiple susbtrates.
NX-9018 is a bio-based multifunctional polyol that provides low viscosity and light color as well as high strength and good color stability to polyurethane coatings, adhesives, and composites.
NX-9212 is a biobased polyether diol that offers low viscosity, light color, and good hydrolytic stability. This diol is suitable for prepolymer making, 1k and 2k polyurethanes.
NX-8501 is a waterborne curing agent for epoxy coatings and adhesives. This completely solvent free hardener enables zero and low VOC formulations without compromising performance. NX-8501 is a solution-type curing agent supplied at 80% solids in water.
NX-9014 Polyol is a great solution for coatings and adhesive applications that require protection and aesthetics in one product. This new polyol provides low viscosity, good weatherability, and excellent bonding properties for high performing coatings and adhesives.
Specialty cardanol grade, NX-2026, showed favorable results compared to petro-based counterpart in a recent life cycle analysis (LCA) conducted by the nova-Institut in Germany. LCA is a process to evaluate and quantify the environmental burdens associated with a product, process, or activity by identifying and quantifying energy and materials used and wastes released to the environment during their life cycle.
A cradle-to-gate scenario (cultivation of cashew trees to factory gate) showed that the use of NX-2026 instead of nonyl phenol significantly reduces Global Warming Potential due to the uptake of CO2 by cashew trees. NX-2026 also showed lower abiotic depletion potential of fossil fuels than nonyl phenol.

LITE 5262 is enabling a new line of high-performing, low-VOC, marine and protective epoxy coatings. This new phenalkamine has very high solids content (less than 5% solvent!), is low in viscosity and provides excellent cure profile and anticorrosion properties. LITE 5262 delivers very fast cure even at low temperatures, fast hardness development, excellent adhesion to various substrates and the same level of corrosion protection as encounter in superior quality coatings, but at much lower VOC.
