2,2’-AZOBISISOBUTYRONITRILE (AIBN)

2,2’- azobisisobutyronitrile (AIBN) is the best known azo initiators which are easy and safe to use in free radical polymerization catalyst in the processing temperature range of 45-90 ºC, a primary criterion in controlling polymerisation reactions (Initiator for the (co)polymerization of styrene, vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride, acrylonitrile, acrylates and methacrylates.).

2,2’-AZOBISISOVALERONITRILE (AIVN)

2,2’-Azobisisovaleronitrile (AIVN) is the initiator for the (co)polymerization of styrene, vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride, acrylonitrile, acrylates and methacrylates. AIVN is soluble in a wide variety of solvents and not soluble in water. 2,2’-Azobisisovaleronitrile (AIVN) is a safer alternative of AIBN.

DIBUTYL SEBACATE (DBS)

Dibutyl sebacate (DBS) is the most efficient plasticizer. Provides excellent compatibility and superior low temperature properties to a variety of polymers. Provides products a high cold-resistance at low temperatures, light and water resistance. Non-toxic and can be used in products that come into contact with food and pharmaceutical products.
