Cashew phenol popularly know as Cardanol or Card-Phenol manufactured from cashew nut shell liquid (CNSL). It is a monohydroxyl phenol having a long hydrocarbon chain (C15H27) in a metaposition.
The products obtained from CARDANOL have many advantages over these manufactured from other substituted phenols. It is therefore widely used in the manufacture of surface coating, insulating varnishes, Epoxy and oil soluble resins, laminates, rubber and wax compounding, pesticides, Foundry, dyes etc.

- A light pale Brown/yellow liquid manufactured from Cashew Nut Shell Liquid
- Also know as cashew phenol
- The unique Molecular structure of Cardanol, especially unsaturation of long Hydrocarbon said chain, makes the cross linking easy on Polymerization
- Besides the side chain imparting hydrophobic nature to the polymer, its coating is water repellent and weather resistant.
- Cardanol based resins posses an outstanding resistance to softening action of mineral oil and high resistance to acids alkalies, antimicrobial property termite and insect resistance etc.
- Contributes to improved flexibility, good drying after banking, high electric insulation properties and thermal stability.
- Amenability to chemical modification to effect desirable changes so as to get specific properties for making tailor-made polymers of high value, thus the structural changes could be effected at the hydroxyl group, on the aromatic ring and on the side chain.
- These properties make Cardanol an effective substitute for the petroleum-based phenol.
