  • Applications

    Polymerization of ethylene: Trigonox EHP 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. Polymerization of vinyl chloride: Trigonox EHP is applied as an initiator for the suspension and mass polymerization of vinyl chloride in the temperature range between 40°C and 65°C. Trigonox EHP can be used alone or in combination with other peroxides, such as 1,1,3,3-Tetramethylbutyl peroxyneodecanoate Trigonox 423), Cumyl peroxyneodecanoate (Trigonox 99) or Dilauroyl peroxide (Laurox), to increase reactor efficiency.
