AkzoNobel (Chicago, IL, US) will showcase at CAMX the three pillars that support its place in the market.

Innovation: Perkadox 16-40XPS, characterized by AkzoNobel as the only safe alternative to Perkadox 16. Perkadox 16, a initiator for cured-in-place pipe, pultrusion and low-temperature molding compounds, is being re-classified by the National Fire Protection Association as a Class I material. This severely restricts storage and handling to the point where it is difficult to justify the expense of updating storage facilities. This adds to the already expensive shop practices necessary to safely use Perkadox 16. Perkadox 16-40XPS was developed with all these safety, health and regulatory requirements in mind. It is said to be the only alternative on the market that is safer to use with minimal investment in storage and handling. The thixotropic paste delivers a safer dust free-form of Perkadox 16 in larger containers without the need for premixing or potentially dangerous heating and cooling. The fine particle size suspension delivers the same activity as the original Perkadox 16 and is stored in the same NFPA Class III storage facilities currently used. 

Safety: As a leader in organic peroxides safety, the company believes that by providing up-to-date information on all safety aspects of organic peroxides, providing in-house courses and on-site trainings, it can further enable its customers to work with its products safely.  This short video offers more information on the key safety aspects of organic peroxides.

Sustainability: AkzoNobel says it is committed to reducing its impact on the planet and delivering more sustainable products and solutions. That's why, the company says, it has integrated sustainability into every area of its business.

AT CAMX, Anthony Bennett, AkzoNobel’s technical development manager, polymer chemistry, will present at two informational sessions. The first, Thursday, Oct. 29, 2:00 p.m., is titled "Novel Water-insensitive Curing Systems for Biofiber Reinforced Unsaturated Polyester Resin Composites."The second, also on Thursday, Oct. 29, 3:00 p.m., is titled "A Paste of Di(4-Tertbutylcyclohexyl)Peroxydicarbonate (Commonly Known as Perkadox 16) Provides NFPA Class III Storage and Novel Use Options for CIPP and Pultrusion Applications."
