  • Applications

    Polymerization of styreneTrigonox D-C50 can be used for the suspension polymerization and copolymerization of styrene in the temperature range between 90°C and 130°C.  During polymerization the temperature is increased in steps. A comparison is made between thermally and Trigonox D initiated (0. 08 mmole/100 g styrene) polymerization of styrene in a mass process, applying a typical temperature scheme (110-140-180°C).
