  • Applications

    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.
