Coatings with high chemical resistance
Solar module encapsulants
Why using TAC and TAICROS®
The advantage of using TAC and TAICROS® as coagents in peroxide or electron beam induced crosslinking is their ability to improve the crosslinking efficiency. This is advanatgeous in two directions. On one hand TAC or TAICROS® can be added on top of the regular peroxide concentration to increase the crosslinking density and improve all properties aligned with this. On the other hand, a part of the peroxide can be replaced by TAC or TAICROS® to reduce the disadvantages associated with the peroxide like volatile or toxic byproducts or blooming without a reduction of crosslinking degree. In cases where more expensive peroxides are required TAC and TAICROS® also help to reduce cost.
