CNSL resin acts as a good binding agent for the Brake Lining mechanism as it provides the requisite characteristics of a straight phenolic along with increased flexibility, good thermal stability and higher impact resistance which results in the decrease in the co-efficient of friction. It is known to increase the frictional properties and make the brake lining abrasion resistant. The advantages of Cashew Resin compared with Synthetic Phenolic Resin is that they produce a softer material which is more efficient for cold wear, that covers temperature up to 205°C and is likely to find application in low speed automobiles.
Cashew Nut Shell Liquid (CNSL) has a phenolic nature, which makes it suitable for polymerization into various types of resins upon being formulated with formaldehyde. These resins act as a good binding agent as it provides the requisite characteristics of a straight phenolic along with increased flexibility, high thermal stability and tougher impact resistance which cause the decrease in the co-efficient of friction. It is known to increase the friction properties and make the brake lining abrasion resistant.
The advantages of Cashew Resin compared with Synthetic Phenolic Resin is that they produce a softer solid which is more efficient for cold wear, this covers resistance to temperature up to 205°C which is the maximum and is likely to be generated in low speed automobiles. It is preferred for the manufacture of Brake Linings and Clutch Facings because of increased hardness, toughness and high resistance to chemicals and temperature. It is also widely used to manufacture asbestos and non-asbestos type of brake lining, disc pads and railway brake blocks.
