Nouryon Starts Production of New Dibenzoyl Peroxide in Mexico

April 15 2019

Nouryon (formerly AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals) has started production of a new version of its dibenzoyl peroxide (BPO), Perkadox GB-50, at Los Reyes, Mexico. It is the first dry BPO on the market that does not use the desensitizing agent dicyclohexyl phthalate (DCHP), which the European Union recently reclassified as a category 1B Reproductive Toxin.

Perkadox GB-50 is used as a curing agent for road markings, flooring, elastomeric roof coatings, adhesives, chemical anchors and other acrylic composites.

The expansion and upgrade project at Los Reyes, including construction of a facility to make the new peroxide, involved investment of more than 12 million euros.

This is the latest in a series of investments by Nouryon to better serve and grow with its customers in the polymer market. The company is continuing to strengthen its production network to enable continued security of supply to its customers in the North American polymer market. Additional capacity is also scheduled to come online in Brazil, China, and India.
