Cardolite produces products based on cashew nutshell liquid (CNSL). This is a naturally occurring renewable oil from the shell of the cashew nut. The primary component of CNSL distillation is cardanol. Cardanol is a natural phenolic compound with a long aliphatic side chain. These products are further processed to produce the following products:
Epoxy curing agents: phenalkamine and phenalkamides
Epoxy resin modifiers: reactive epoxy diluent
Accelerators and non reactive diuents
Cardolite is based in NJ with production facilities in China and India.
