Polymerization of styreneTrigonox 117 can be used as an initiator for the polymerization and copolymerization of styrene in the temperature range between 100°C and 130°C. In a mass process Trigonox 117 can be advantageously used to increase polymerization rates. In suspension polymerization processes Trigonox 117 is an efficient peroxide for reduction of residual styrene concentration during the final polymerization stage.Trigonox 117 can be used to crosslink elastomers at intermediate temperatures, a typical crosslink temperature is 150°C. Trigonox 117 is recommended for highly demanding applications e.g. as crosslinker for the ethylene vinylacetate copolymer (EVA) film in photovoltaic devices.
Initiator for (co)polymerization of acrylates and methacrylates.
Aliphatic percarbonate used for curing unsaturated polyester resins at elevated temperatures. Specially developed for UP resin-based Hot Press Moulding formulations (SMC, DMC, BMC). For BMC to reach low values of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC).
