Trigonox 193-W50 is a polymerization initiator for (co)polymerization of ethylene, vinyl chloride and vinylidene chloride.
Latin America, North America
3-Hydroxy-1,1-dimethyl butylperoxyneodecanoate, 50% solution in emulsion in water and methanol
Polymerization of vinyl chloride: Trigonox 193-W50 is used as an initiator for the suspension and mass polymerization of vinyl chloride between 40°C and 65°C. Trigonox 193-W50 is often combined with less active peroxides such as peroxydicarbonates (e.g. Perkadox 16) or diacyl peroxides (e.g. Laurox) to increase reactor efficiency.
