Highly efficient crosslinking additives
All products in the product family TAC/TAICROS® are triazine structures based on our base material cyanuric chloride. The trade name “TAICROS®” was developed for the products launched after 2000 starting with TAICROS® without suffix standing for Triallyl isocyanurate, followed by TAICROS® TMT (Trimercapto triazine).
Both, TAC (Triallyl cyanurate, CAS no. 101-37-1) and TAICROS® (TAIC = tri-allyl-iso-cyanurate, CAS no. 1025-15-6) are trifunctional monomers with versatile applications. At the allyl double bonds typical addition reactions like epoxidations, brominations, hydroformulations a.o. as well as radical-induced polymerizations and crosslinking reactions with quite a number of monomers and polymers can be carried out.
TAC and TAICROS® are mainly used as crosslinking additives in peroxide or electron beam induced crosslinking of rubber and plastic materials providing the following advantages:
Improvement of crosslinking efficiency
Improvement of thermal stability and aging properties
Low compression set and improved chemical resistance of rubber materials
Improved hot set behavior and increased thermal and chemical resistance of plastic materials
Increased cure speed and improved transparency of EVA encapsulants for solar modules
TAICROS® TMT (Trimercapto triazine, CAS no. 638-16-4) is an environmentally friendly crosslinker for epichlorohydrine rubber (ECO).
