Nouryon is featuring Perkadox GB-50, a new version of its dibenzoyl peroxide (BPO).

Nouryon (formerly AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals; Amsterdam, Netherlands) is featuring Perkadox GB-50, a new version of its dibenzoyl peroxide (BPO) under production at the company’s Los Reyes, Mexico facility. The company says Perkadox GB-50 is the first dry BPO on the market that does not use the desensitizing agent dicyclohexyl phthalate (DCHP), which has been reclassified as a category 1B reproductive toxin by the EU. Perkadox GB-50 is used as a curing agent for road markings, flooring, elastomeric roof coatings, adhesives, chemical anchors and other acrylic composites.

The company constructed a new facility in Los Reyes to make the new peroxide, involving an investment of more than €12 million. This is the latest in a series of investments by Nouryon to better serve its customers in the North American polymer market. The company also plans to construct new facilities in Brazil, China and India.

  • Additive manufacturing comes to composites fabrication

    The use of continuous fiber in additive manufacturing systems is not trivial, but it is being done. As this fabrication technology evolves and matures, options for applying it in everything from automotive to aerospace to consumer composites will expand tremendously, creating a host of new opportunities for the composites industry. Read here for who is providing what kind of additive manufacturing technology for use in composites fabrication.

  • Ceramic matrix composites: Hot engine solution

    Disruptive designs for composites operation in 1093°C zones.

  • Preforming goes industrial: Part 1

    ATL and AFP-based preforming options now abound for processing dry and/or impregnated reinforcements as quickly as 1 minute or less with potential yearly part yields in the millions.
