Cashew Shells are widely processed into oil by using different techniques and state-of-the-art equipment. Various cashew shell oil manufacturers use top class machines in carrying out the processes of shell conveying, expelling, and oil treatment.
Cashew Nut Shell Liquid Oil often known as CNSL or vegetable oil is an effective material from industrial usage. It is a renewable material and thus has an important part to play in the industry, and because of this, it has an advantage over synthetics. It has innumerable application and widely used for its versatility.
CNSL has a chemical properties that has special structural features, which transform the specialty chemicals and high value polymers. The oil thus, provide a value addition of chemical features that provides 100% pure chemically pure products. Therefore, cashew nut shell liquid oil is widely used in specialty chemicals, high value products, and polymers.
