Product Name: Luperox® TAEC Polymer Initiator
Chemical name: tert-Amyl peroxy(2-ethylhexyl)carbonate Abbreviation: TAEC
CAS No.: 70833-40-8
Luperox® TAEC polymer initiator is a tertiary amyl initiator for the synthesis of expandable polystyrene. The non-aromatic chemistry makes it a good alternative to tert-butyl peroxybenzoate in food contact applications. Luperox® TAEC also produces a very effective free radical that improves monomer conversion, reduces residual styrene and improves grafting efficiency.
