Nouryon (formerly AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals), a specialty chemicals maker, has introduced a new powder version of its Perkadox 16 (BCHPC) organic peroxide. Known as Perkadox 16 GB-70, the new chemical will allow customers in North American composites market to safely store larger volumes of product while meeting the latest fire safety standards.

Perkadox 16 GB-70 is targeted at processes including cured-in-place pipe where a new pipe is manufactured inside an existing damaged line and pultrusion, used to make hardgoods such as window frames, ladders, and other closed-mold applications, said Nouryon in a press release .

“Perkadox 16 GB-70 was developed with the latest US regulatory requirements in mind, including the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Class II rating,” said Ross Opsahl, business development manager polymer chemistry at Nouryon. “It is a stabilised peroxide powder that easily dissolves in styrene or resin, allowing our distributors and customers to safely store up to 10 times more product, while improving operational efficiency and ease of handling.”

“We have a deep understanding of organic peroxide chemistry and are committed to producing safer and more sustainable products. This innovation underpins our focus on driving higher standards to satisfy our customers’ needs in today’s evolving market landscape,” said Johan Landfors, managing director polymer chemistry at Nouryon.

Nouryon recently also expanded its peroxides offering in North America with the launch of its Butanox-branded product line of methyl ethyl ketone peroxide (MEKP), a new version of its Butanox M-50 vanishing red peroxide and emulsion-based organic peroxides for the PVC market. (PC)
