Polymerization of styrene: Trigonox C-C75 may be used for the (co)polymerization of styrene in the temperature range of 100-140°C. In practice, combinations of two or more peroxides with diverging activities are used to reduce the residual monomer content in the final polymer and to increase reactor efficiency.
In suspension polymerization processes Trigonox C-C75 is often used for reduction of residual styrene content during the final polymerization stage.
Polymerization of ethylene: Trigonox C-C75 is an efficient initiator for the ethylene polymerization at high pressure in both autoclave and tubular processes. To obtain a wide spectrum of polymerization temperatures, Trigonox C-C75 is often used in combination with other peroxides. Depending on reaction conditions, Trigonox C-C75 is active in the temperature range of 220-270°C.
