  • Applications

    Polymer production: Polymerization of ethylene: Trigonox B is an efficient initiator for the production of Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE). It is used both for tubular and autoclave processes. In most cases a combination with other peroxides is used to ensure a broad reactivity range. For Crosslinking: Due to its high volatility, Trigonox B is mainly used for compounds that are crosslinked immediately after mixing. Trigonox B is a thermally relatively stable crosslinking peroxide. However, the high vapor pressure and the low flashpoint (+6°C) require special attention during handling and use. Trigonox B tends to build up static electricity; pumps must be ignition proof with grounded stainless steel tubing. Avoid any exposure to heat from naked fire, sunlight, steam pipes or any other source during storage. Safe processing temperature: 145°C (rheometer ts2 > 20 minutes). Typical crosslinking temperature: 180°C (rheometer t90 about 12 minutes).
