Cashew Nut Shell Liquid Resin

  • It mainly consists of two naturally produced Phenolic Compounds i.e. Anacardic Acid and Cardol. Both of them are non-drying and cannot be dried up unless by chemical reaction.
  • CNSL Resin is a transparent viscous resin with golden color film. It is highly suitable for the surface coating application, where outstanding film properties and very high resistance to water and chemicals are required.
  • Therefore, CNSL Resin is used commonly as a paint raw material due to its high water and chemical resistant property.


  • CNSL Resin is the best modified Phenolic type. It offers the necessary traits of a straight phenolic nature without the oil bleeding and hence functions as a good binding agent.
  • The flexibility, thermal stability and impact resistance it provides, causes the decrease in the co-efficient of friction. It also combines the features of thermosetting and binding, especially used for Brake Lining.


Applications Characteristics
Brake Lining CNSL Formaldehyde (NOVOLAC) resins are used for brake liner binding preparation
Paint and coatings
  • Dark color enamels application
  • Provide required gloss, flexibility as well as good mechanical strength, quick drying ability,
