Dicumene® is a flame retardant synergist, designed for the use in polyolefins as well as in polystyrenes especially in EPS and HIPS.
As an environmental friendly alternative for antimony trioxide, Dicumene® is able to significantly reduce its use in polypropylene, polyethylene and polystyrene. For achieving UL 94 V2 standard, antimony trioxide can be completely substituted by Dicumene® in most of the cases. At the same
time the use of brominated flame retardants can be reduced as well.
Dicumene® is showing next to a good thermal stability – compared to dicumol peroxide – an
improving flowability of the material. Beyond that Dicumene® is 99% pure, eco friendly and nearly
odourless. In addition the low dosing of 0,2% - 2% offers economic advantages .
