Market Segments

Polymer crosslinking

Detailed description

Trigonox® 117 can be used to crosslink elastomers at intermediate temperatures, a typical crosslink temperature is 150°C. Trigonox® 117 is recommended for highly demanding applications e.g. as crosslinker for the ethylene vinylacetate copolymer (EVA) film in photovoltaic devices.

Functions

  • Crosslinking peroxide

Applications

  • EVA encapsulant for solar cells,
  • POE

Polymer production

Detailed description

Trigonox® 117 can be used as an initiator for the polymerization and copolymerization of styrene in the temperature range between 100°C and 130°C. In a mass process Trigonox® 117 can be advantageously used to increase polymerization rates. In suspension polymerization processes Trigonox® 117 is an efficient peroxide for reduction of residual styrene concentration during the final polymerization stage.

Functions

  • Polymerization initiator

Applications

  • LDPE,
  • Polystyrene

Thermoset composites

Detailed description

Trigonox® 117 is an aliphatic percarbonate used for curing unsaturated polyester resins at elevated temperatures. Specially developed for UP resin-based Hot Press Moulding formulations (SMC, DMC, BMC). For BMC to reach low values of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC).

Functions

  • Curing agent

Applications

  • Hot press molding

Acrylics production

Detailed description

Trigonox® 117 can be used as initiator for the solution (co)polymerization of acrylates and methacrylates in the temperature range of 100-170°C, amongst others for the manufacture of coatings. Trigonox® 117 can also be applied as an initiator for the bulk and suspension (co)polymerization of acrylates and methacrylates.

Functions

  • Polymerization initiator

Applications

  • Acrylics
