promoted by Nadkarni family. The company was started in the year 1985 with
the name Vanaprabha. The name was changed to "Paladin
in the year 2000. Paladins strength is in
developing novel, innovative, speciality, green technology, cost effective
resins & diluents.
Mr. Nadkarni was 1st Technical Director of Asian Paints in 1950s. He
is the first person who started manufacturing alkyd resins in India.
From the year 1960-1994, Mr. Nadkarni was main share holder & Technical
Director of M/s. Bombay Paints Ltd. which was in collaboration with M/s.
Hempel Marine Paints of Denmark. In this period, Mr. Nadkarni developed
various protective & marine paints formulations to suit the specific end
Paladin has invested large amount of sum in Resin R&D Laboratory,
Instruments, Equipments & People. The Lab is headed under able guidance
of Dr. Barde who has more than 30 years of experience in Organic &
Nut Shell Liquid "
All these speciality resins are developed from "Cardenol
which is extracted from CNSL. CNSL is an agricultural product and it is
a renewable resource. Also, it is not derived from Petroleum. Hence,
free from ever changing petroleum prices.
All the experience gained while working with M/s. Hempel in
developing marine & protective coatings has gone in to development of
range of hardeners, adducts, diluents, phenolic resins & modified
all based on Cashew Nut Shell Liquid (CNSL)

The Epoxy hardeners, i.e. phenalkamines developed from Cardenol (Mannich
base) hardeners and their epoxy adducts have great advantage over Polyamide
resins in terms of low temperature cure even at High Humidity,
Superior Water and Corrosion Resistance. Also, they offer better Acid,
Alkali, Solvent and Chemical Resistance
. They show good
Adhesion to Damp Surfaces
. Also, these products have relative
. So, they can be formulated at very high
Solids, even 100%
. This translates into High Solids/Low
products. Worldwide shipbuilding activities are concentrated in
Korea, Japan & China where average temperatures are very low, even minus
in winter. Rapid cure at very high Humidity
phenalkamine epoxy hardeners more suitable and practical. These hardeners
with low viscosity are very useful in formulating High Solids Epoxy
Primers, Mid Coats, Floor Coatings etc.
Epoxy reactive and
non-reactive diluents developed from Cardenol can be used in developing
Solventless, High Solids Pipe and Tank Coatings, Mastic Coatings,
Floor Coatings etc.
which are cost effective
without affecting the performance. Our novel One Pack
developed from Cardenol are useful in OEM applications, PU Hybrid
coatings and users friendly onepack
Our R&D has also developed a unique product line called the "Tropical
Range" for regions which have hot climatic conditions, such as India,
Singapore, etc. In this range we have overcome the limitations of
phenalkamines by improving colour and pot life.
