ExaPhen is a line of aromatic multifunctional and mannich amine polyols for rigid PUR/PIR foams.
With ExaPhen we want to revolutionise the NOP market (Natural Oil Polyols) by offering the performance of the traditional polyols sourced from the beauty of the nature, but at a fair price
From a chemical point of view, cardanol represents an interesting and versatile substrate: it contains three different functional groups, namely the aromatic ring, the hydroxy group and the double bonds in the alkyl chain, that can be either selectively or simultaneously modified by simply tuning the chemical synthetic pathways according to the expected features of final product. ExaPhen is the result of the original know-how developed by Composite Technical Services
LLC (CTS), aimed at both:
- introducing innovative chemical modifications on each functional group of raw cardanol
- maximizing the consistency of the CNSL composition which can fall short of variability due to its natural source
- maximizing consistent quality coming with the cardanol in use and its subsequent functionalization
