Nouryon, formerly AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals, has introduced a powder version of its Perkadox 16 (BCHPC) organic peroxide for the North American composites market.

Perkadox 16 GB-70, is targeted at processes including cured-in-place pipe and pultrusion to make hardgoods, such as window frames, ladders, and other closed-mold applications.

‘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 stabilized peroxide powder that easily dissolves in styrene or resin, allowing our distributors and customers to safely store up to 10 times more product.’
