    Polymerization of vinyl chlorideLaurox S is a widely used initiator for the suspension and mass polymerization of vinyl chloride between 60°C and 80°C. In many cases Laurox S is combined with a more active initiator, such as a peroxydicarbonate (e. g. PerkadoxP 16) to increase reactor efficiency. Conversion/time and conversion rate/time curves are given in Figure 1.
