Cardolite’s NX-2026 Nominated for Innovation Award ‘’Bio-based Material of the Year 2018’’

Cardolite’s NX-2026 has been nominated for the Innovation Award ‘’Bio-based Material of the Year 2018’’. 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.

This technology will be presented at the International Conference on Bio-based Materials (15-16 May, 2018) in Cologne, Germany.
