Applications

TAC/TAICROS®
TAICROS PP

Typical applications of TAC and TAICROS® products in peroxide or electron beam crosslinking of plastics 


„Besides pure material in liquid form, we also have TAC/TAICROS on different carriers as masterbatch (HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, PP, PA6, EVA etc.).
With our TAC/TAICROS masterbatch products, simpler production process can be realized; 

no additional investment for handling liquid additives in current production facility;

possible to reduce vapors & smoke at higher process temperature; 

energy saving up to 95% for production of e-beam crosslinked engineering polymers. “

Comparison of TAC and TAICROS® 

The difference between TAC and TAICROS® is their different thermal stability providing specific solutions for different processing conditions. TAICROS® can be used in polymers with processing or crosslinking temperatures up to 250 °C versus about 180 °C for TAC.

For processing temperatures above 200 °C exhaustion systems at the extruder outlet and if required above the dosing station are required due to the high vapor pressure of TAICROS®.
