  • Applications

    Polymerization of rheology polypropyleneTrigonox 101 is an efficient peroxide for the degradation of polypropylene (CR-PP) in the temperature range of 200-250°C. Trigonox 101 allows polypropylene producers great flexibility in controlling a polymer’s Melt Flow Index (MFI). Small changes in either peroxide concentration or process temperature can produce significantly different MFI’s.
