LUPEROX® 231EB88

Luperox® 231EB88 A is a 88% of 1,1-Di(tert-butylperoxy)-3,3,5-trimethylcyclohexane in ethyl benzene
#CAS 6731-36-8
Product overview
Luperox® 231EB88 A polymer initiator is a cyclic peroxyketal initiator for the polymerization of styrenics. Luperox® 231EB88 A converts styrene monomer into high molecular weight polymers faster than using a thermal process alone. This productivity increase is seen in the conversion rate of styrene into polystyrene when Luperox® 231EB88 A is added during polymerization from 100°C to 130°C. For high-impact polystyrene synthesis, the di-radical generated by Luperox® 231EB88 A can also improve the polystyrene to rubber grafting ratio, resulting in higher impact performance products.
