  • Applications

    Synergist in flame-retardant polystyrene: Polystyrene, especially expandable polystyrene, is made fire-retardant by the use of halogen-containing additives such as hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD). Initiators such as Perkadox 30-pd are commonly used as synergistic coagents to reduce the amount of HBCD required. Perkadox 30-pd is well suited to this application as it has sufficient thermal stability at the temperatures used in suspension polymerization. The addition of Perkadox 30-pd to styrene monomer immediately before the onset of polymerization will not affect the polymerization process.
