NX-2026 has been specifically optimized to provide a light color and high purity raw material with reproducible hydroxyl value and functionality, overcoming the limitations of lower purity grades (generally simply called "cardanol"), such as smell, presence of by-products (e.g., cardol, 2-methyl-cardoI) and potential batch to batch variability.
In the cashew nut shell, cashew nut shell liquid occurs mainly as anacardic acid (~90%) and cardol around slightly lower than 10%.
