  • Applications

    For some special applications it is desirable to use a dry benzoyl peroxide powder as a catalyst. For these cases the benzoyl peroxide formulation Perkadox 20S was introduced, which is a mixture of benzoyl peroxide and filler. Perkadox 20S can be handled very easily and without risk. It contains no plasticizer and is lower concentrated than the usual benzoyl peroxide formulations, which makes dosing easier. One of the most important applications for Perkadox 20S is as a catalyst for putties based on unsaturated polyester resins. A putty containing an accelerated polyester resin and Perkadox 20S cures rapidly so that after a short time the surface can be sanded and polished.
