Market Segments

Polymer production

Detailed description

Polymerization of vinyl chloride: Perkadox® 16S is applied as an initiator for the suspension and mass polymerization of vinyl chloride in the temperature range between 40°C and 65°C. Perkadox® 16S can be used alone or in combination with other peroxides, such as 1,1,3,3-Tetramethylbutyl peroxyneodecanoate (Trigonox® 423), Cumyl peroxyneodecanoate (Trigonox® 99) or Dilauroyl peroxide (Laurox®), to increase reactor efficiency.
