Detailed description

Perkadox® ACCN may be used as an initiator for the solution polymerization of acrylates and methacrylates in the temperature range of 60 – 105°C. Perkadox® ACCN does not form oxygenated residues and does not cause oxidative degradation of pigmented or dyed systems. Therefore color stability of transparent colored polymers, such as methyl methacrylate, is improved. Perkadox® ACCN may also be used in the solution polymerization of acrylates and methacrylates for the manufacture of coatings. Excessive grafting may occur in acrylic polymers for coatings manufacture when organic peroxides are used as initiators. The excessive grafting can be avoided by the use of azo initiators. Generates less aggressive C radicals which enables use in place of peroxide initiators for acrylic polymerization to avoid excessive grafting and form low molecular weight resins.
