  • Applications

    Perkadox® 24L is applied as an initiator for the suspension and mass polymerization of vinyl chloride in the temperature range between 45°C and 65°C. Perkadox® 24L may be used 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. Perkadox® 24L has low water solubility, low vapor pressure and is quickly and evenly distributed into the monomer. There are important properties when a PVC resin of low fish-eye content and narrow particle size distribution is to be produced and autoclaves are to be kept free of crusts and scale.
