Luperox® 223V75 polymer initiator
Features and Benefits
- Reduced Environmental Impact
V-series products allow for the reduction of VOCs (volatile organic components) at the PVC manufacturing site, since OMS emissions can be eliminated.
- Increased Safety
The V-series products have a higher SADT (self-accelerating decomposition temperature) than stabilized products currently available. Since peroxydicarbonates are among the most dangerous peroxides used, this improvement in safety is a major benefit.
- Improved Storage Conditions
In many cases, the V-series products have higher recommended storage temperatures than comparable products which allows for more convenient storage, reduced refrigeration costs and reduced safety risks.
- Better Peroxide Stability
Laboratory studies indicate that V-series products maintain assay better than OMS-diluted peroxides, even for periods of up to 12 weeks at temperatures above the recommended storage temperatures. As a result, the new formulations have longer shelf life.
- Improved Resin Quality
Use of these new products allows manufacturers to produce a cleaner resin since the levels of extractables in the PVC resin can be dramatically reduced. This means there will be less plate-out on processing devices.
- Cost Effectiveness
All of the benefits outlined can be obtained at a cost similar to that of current OMS-based formulations.
