  • Applications

    For Polymer production: Polymerization of styrene: Perkadox BC-FF may be used for the (co)polymerization of styrene in the temperature range of 110-165°C. In a mass process Perkadox BC-FF can be advantageously used to increase polymerization rates. Coagent in flame-retardant polystyrene: Perkadox BC-FF may also be used as synergistic co-agent in combination with halogen containing flame retardants to produce flame-retardant expandable polystyrene. For Crosslinking: Perkadox BC-FF is a monofunctional peroxide which is used for the crosslinking of natural rubber and synthetic rubbers, as well as polyolefins. Rubber compounds containing Perkadox BC-FF have excellent scorch safety, and under certain conditions one step mixing is possible. Safe processing temperature: 130°C (rheometer ts2 > 20 min.). Typical crosslinking temperature: 170°C (rheometer t90 about 12 min.). For Thermoset: Perkadox BC-FF is a special purpose high temperature initiator for the curing of unsaturated polyester, vinyl ester and acrylic thermosetting resins.
