  • Applications

    Perkadox AIBN can be successfully used for bulk, solution, suspension, polymerization  of a wide variety of monomers, such as styrene, vinyl chloride, vinylidene, acrylonitrile, acrylates and methacrylates.  Perkadox AIBN does not form oxygenated residues and does not cause oxidative degradation of pigmented of dyed polymer systems. For this reason, the color stability or transparent, dyed polymers, such as polymethylmethacrylate, is improved.

Polymer Production

Detailed description

Solid initiator for bulk, solution and suspension polymerization of a wide variety of monomers such as styrene, vinyl chloride, vinylidene, acrylonitrile, acrylates and methacrylates. Generates less aggressive C radicals compared to peroxide initiators, avoiding excessive grafting and form low-molecular weight resins.
