Market Segments

Polymer crosslinking

Detailed description

Trigonox C is used for the crosslinking of natural and synthetic rubbers, as well as thermoplastic polyolefins. Rubber compounds containing Trigonox C have moderate processing safety in combination with a very high rate of cure. Safe processing temperature (rheometer ts2 > 20 minutes): 100°C. Typical crosslink temperature (rheometer t90 about 12 minutes): 140°C. Trigonox C is not recommended for compounds which contain carbon black.

Functions

  • Crosslinking peroxide

Applications

  • Silicone rubber,
  • Crosslinking rubber

Polymer production

Detailed description

Polymerization of styrene: Trigonox C 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. Polymerization of ethylene: Trigonox C 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 is often used in combination with other peroxides. Depending on reaction conditions, Trigonox C is active in the temperature range of 220-270°C.

Functions

  • Polymerization initiator

Applications

  • LDPE,
  • Polystyrene

Thermoset composites

Detailed description

Trigonox C, tert-butyl peroxybenzoate, is an aromatic perester, which is used for the curing of unsaturated polyester resins at elevated temperatures. Trigonox C is preferred for the curing of UP resin based Hot Press Moulding formulations (SMC, BMC etc.) in the temperature range of 120-170°C. Trigonox C can also be used in combination with high reactive peroxides like Perkadox 16 as kicker in formulations for pultrusion in the temperature range of 100-150°C.

Functions

  • Curing agent

Applications

  • Hot press molding,
  • Pultrusion,
  • CIPP

Acrylics production

Detailed description

In the temperature range of 100-170°C, Trigonox C can be used as an initiator for the solution polymerization or copolymerization of acrylate and methacrylate, especially for the production of coatings. Trigonox C can also be used as initiator for bulk and suspension polymerization or copolymerization of acrylate and methacrylate.

Functions

  • Polymerization initiator

Applications

  • Acrylics
