  • Applications

    For Polymer production: Polymerization of styrene: Perkadox BC-FF may be used for the (co)polymerization of styrene in the temperature range of 110-165°C. In a mass process Perkadox BC-FF can be advantageously used to increase polymerization rates. Coagent in flame-retardant polystyrene: Perkadox BC-FF may also be used as synergistic co-agent in combination with halogen containing flame retardants to produce flame-retardant expandable polystyrene. For Crosslinking: Perkadox BC-FF is used for the crosslinking of natural and synthetic rubbers, as well as thermoplastic polyolefins. Rubber compounds containing Perkadox BC-FF have good processing safety with a moderate rate of cure. Safe processing temperature (rheometer ts2 > 20 minutes): 130°C. Typical crosslink temperature (rheometer t90 about 12 minutes): 170°C. Data were determined by means of a rheometer in an EPDM-based test compound.
