HIGH BONDING CASHEW RESIN SILEX RBR–100 FOR
BRAKE LININGS APPLICATIONS
SILEX RBR-100 is a functionalized polymer resin obtained by reaction with formalin in
Acidic media. This is based on Cashew Nut Shell Liquid with high bonding used for
manufacture of friction elements such as brake linings and clutch facings along with
asbestos, fillers and friction dust.
SILEX RBR-100 is compatible with Phenolic, Epoxy and Alkyd resins.
SILEX RBR-100 is soluble in White Spirit (MTO), Xylene, Ester, Ketonic solvents, etc.
