HIGH BIO-CONTENT EPOXY RESINS AND MODIFIERS
Cardolite NC-514 and NC-514S are flexible difunctional glycidyl ether epoxy resins. The chain of 8 carbons separating the aromatic groups allows this resin to be used in conjunction with traditional epoxy resins to increase coating flexibility, abrasion resistance, and water and chemical resistance without adversely affecting other properties.
Cardolite NC-547 is a polyglycidyl ether epoxy novolac resin derived from cardanol. This resin can be used in combination with standard epoxy resins to bring additional flexibility and longer pot life to coatings without adversely affecting chemical and water resistance.
Cardolite LITE 2100(R) are low color and low viscosity CNSL modified hydrocarbon resins. They are designed to enable high solids and solvent free formulations by lowering the viscosity of epoxy resins more efficiently than typical phenol based hydrocarbon resins and by improving overall system compatibility for better film formation. These products show good hardness development while providing improved flexibility and impact resistance. Their high hydrophobicity results in excellent water resistance, and more importantly, excellent corrosion protection on immersed and vapor exposed surfaces. Both products show very good UV resistance with excellent gloss retention for use in lighter color coatings.
