Market Segments

Polymer production

Detailed description

Polymerization of ethylene: Trigonox F-C50 is an efficient initiator for the ethylene polymerization under high pressure in both autoclave and tubular processes. To obtain a wide spectrum of polymerization temperatures, combinations with other peroxides are applied in practice. Depending on reaction conditions, Trigonox F-C50 is active in the temperature range between 215°C and 250°C. Polymerization of styrene: Trigonox F-C50 can be used for the (co)polymerization of styrene in the temperature range of 100-130°C. During polymerization the temperature is increased in steps.

Acrylics production

Detailed description

Trigonox F-C50 can be used as initiator for the solution (co)polymerization of acrylates and methacrylates in the temperature range of 100-170°C, amongst others for the manufacture of coatings. Trigonox F-C50 can also be applied as an initiator for the bulk and suspension (co)polymerization of acrylates and methacrylates.
