News International-French

The peroxide Brasnox DM50is undoubtedly one of the most traditional products of the South American composites market. Produced by Polinox since 1995, when the company began to focus exclusively on the manufacture of peroxides, Brasnox DM50 has been consumed by over 5,000 molders, who produced countless parts with its help – it ensures the polymerization or cure of thermosetting resins.

“Brasnox DM50® is our most important product today, accounting for almost half of Polinox sales,” says Roberto Pontifex, director. Methyl ethyl ketone peroxide (MEKP), the product clearly leads the ranking of most consumed peroxides in South America. As a matter of fact, Polinox is the largest manufacturer in the region, with an installed capacity of 280 tons/month.

The reasons for such success are mainly the combination of versatility and the superior performance of Brasnox DM50®. Suitable for the polymerization of unsaturated polyester resins, the peroxide produced by Polinox ensures high cure rates in open and closed molding processes. It is also widely applied in the manufacture of gelcoat and plastic putty. That is, it serves for almost everything when it comes to the manufacturing of composites – and always provides the best results.
