Abstract: Bio-plasticizer cardanol acetate was prepared using natural phenolic compounds cardanol as raw material. Its plasticized performance was also studied. When the content of cardanol acetate increased to 10%, the tensile strength and elongation at break of epoxy resin 128/934 system increased to 39.1% and 185.8%, respectively. Compared with dioctyl phthalate(DOP) and dioctyl terephthalate(DOTP), tensile strength and elongation of the cured system with cardanol acetate increased by 38.1%, 36.6% and 145.9%, 51.6%, respectively. The glass transition temperature of epoxy systems was 63.3℃ using cardanol acetic, which is lower than that of DOP. Cardanol acetate gives good plasticized performance which is similar to that of DOP. It has high protential to be used as substitute for DOP in the future.
