  • Applications

    Polymerization of vinyl chloridePerkadox 24L is applied as an initiator for the suspension and mass polymerization of vinyl chloride in the temperature range between 45°C and 65°C. Perkadox 24L may be used in combination with other peroxides such as 1,1,3,3-Tetramethylbutyl peroxyneodecanoate (Trigonox 423), Cumyl peroxyneodecanoate (Trigonox 99) or Dilauroyl peroxide (Laurox) to increase reactor efficiency. Perkadox 24L has low water solubility, low vapor pressure and is quickly and evenly distributed into the monomer. There are important properties when a PVC resin of low fish-eye content and narrow particle size distribution is to be produced and autoclaves are to be kept free of crusts and scale.
