Our organic peroxides are extensively used in degradation, long chain branching or functionalization of thermoplastics via reactive extrusion. Examples are controlled rheology- (CR-PP) and high melt strength polypropylene (HMS-PP).
The choice of peroxide depends on the type of polymer, desired reaction and extrusion temperatures applied.
Trigonox® 301, the latest generation of our organic peroxides for CR-PP, is used to create high melt strength polylactic acid (HMS-PLA) as well. We have also developed technology for grafting maleic anhydride onto polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE) and EPDM.
