Characteristics and applications of Dicumene

Nov 28, 2018

Dicumene is a newly developed new polymer material additive and a popular additive flame retardant. It can be used as a flame retardant synergist for polymer materials and a cross-linking polymer, a catalyst or initiator for graft copolymerization, and is widely used for modification of various polymer materials such as polyolefin, polycarbonate, and polyether. This product has high heat resistance and can be used in engineering plastics with higher processing temperatures.


At the same time,Dicumene has the advantages of non-toxicity, smoke suppression and low cost. As a flame retardant, its addition amount can be reduced by up to 1/3. At present, it can be mainly used as non-peroxide high-energy plastic initiator, graft catalyst, polymer crosslinking initiator, engineering plastic modifier and flame retardant synergist. The appearance of the product is usually white or light yellow powder, which is usually packed in plastic liner bags plus cardboard drums.


As a performance synergist product with outstanding performance, Dicumene can replace antimony trioxide in bromine-based flame retardant system, increase the flame retardant effect, increase the physical and mechanical of plastic while reducing the amount of flame retardant. performance. A graft catalyst for polystyrene, polypropylene, used in polymer crosslinking initiators.http://www.china-zhufengchem.com/
