Thermoplastics

Many thermoplastics, such as LDPE, PVC, PS, cr-PP, PMMA and many others, require organic or anorganic peroxides as radical starters for their manufacture. UI offers the full range of both organic peroxides and persulfates , which are state of the art initiators for suspension, bulk, solvent or emulsion polymerization processes.

Coatings, Dispersions & Specialty Polymers

Our daily life is unthinkable without the existence of the large variety of polymers. They are used in applications such as protecting and embellishing surfaces as well as for materials with particular properties. UI has a long experience in serving these markets with a large range of organic peroxides and persulfates for water-based and solvent-based applications.

Composites/Thermosets

Thermosetting resins are pre-polymers that change irreversibly into an infusible, insoluble polymer network by curing. Curing can be induced by the action of energy and/or organic peroxides. UI offers the most comprehensive product range, featuring various BPO-grades, AAPs, MEKPs and numerous blends for the curing of thermosets at different temperatures.

Crosslinking

Many requirements of polymeric materials can be only achieved by cross-linking the polymer chains. These cross-links allow the optimization of parameters such as elasticity, durability or chemical resistance. Organic peroxides are a major means to achieve influence over these properties.
