Polymerization of ethylene: Trigonox® F-CL50 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-CL50 is active in the temperature range between 215°C and 250°C.
Polymerization of styrene: Trigonox® F-CL50 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.
