CNSL RESIN (CASHEW NUT SHELL LIQUID RESIN)

Cashew Nut Shell Liquid Resin

KS CASHEW OIL COMPANY is a leading manufacturer of CNSL Resin which is mainly used in Paints, Surface Coating Insulating Varnishes, Printing Inks, Baking Enamels, Foundry Core Oil, Lamination, Plywood, and Rubber & Polymers Industries. These Resins are pure and modified grades for suitable application to the industries. Started as a first-generation entrepreneurial venture in 2009, it has steadily grown over the years to become the leading manufacturer of CNSL Resin. CNSL Resin is economic and useful. They can help to reduce cost without affecting performance. CNSL Resins are slightly dark coloured, quick setting, and air drying resins. To begin with one has to understand CNSL products can be incorporated in paint formulation both in grinding and thinning. Care should be taken while processing. One should either grinding in CNSL or alkyd only. Do not mix the two and grind. It will lead to kick out. Grind the pigments in one resin and dilute it later after cooling with other resin. It is useful to check compatibility of two resins before using them. The below advantage to use CNSL resin for paint, coating, varnish industries.

  • The cheapest available Resins for paint Industry.
  • Most economical & durable compared to conventional Alkyds.
  • High electrical insulation properties & good flexibility.
  • Better drying time and hardness compared to conventional Alkyds.
  • Better Anti-corrosion properties, high resistance to water, Acids & Alkalies.
  • Soluble in all types of Solvent and compatible with processed oils.
  • Highly recommended for anti-fouling and marine paints.
  • Excellent application characteristics brush, dip or Spray method.



Cashew Nut Shell Liquid (CNSL) is a versatile by-product of the cashew industry. The nut has a shell of about 1/ 8 inch thickness inside which is a soft honey comb structure containing a dark reddish brown viscous liquid. It is called cashew nut shell liquid, which is the pericap fluid of the cashew nut. It is often considered as the better and cheaper material for unsaturated phenols. CNSL has innumerable applications in polymer based industries such as friction linings, paints and varnishes, laminating resins, rubber compounding resins, cashew cements, polyurethane based polymers, surfactants, epoxy resins, foundry chemicals and intermediates for chemical industry. It offers much scope and varied opportunities for the development of other tailor - made polymers.

We are leading exporter of CNSL to many countries, our supply capacity is more than 12000 tons per year.

We have difference grade of CNSL:
