  • Applications

    Polymerization of styreneTrigonox C may be used for the (co)polymerization of styrene in the temperature range of 100-140°C. In practice, combinations of two or more peroxides with diverging activities are used to reduce the residual monomer content in the final polymer and to increase reactor efficiency. In suspension polymerization processes Trigonox C is often used for reduction of residual styrene content during the final polymerization stage.
