    DCP (dicumyl peroxide), is a white crystal which has C18H2202 as chemical formula. This dialkyl peroxide is used for the (co)polymerization of styrene, besides it is used to crosslink polymers and elastomers. Further it finds its application as flame retardant synergist in EPS. Dicumyl Peroxide is also known as Diisopropylbenzene peroxide, Bis(a,a-dimethylbenzyl) peroxide and Dicumene hydroperoxide.


    Iniper DCP is used as crosslinking agent in the production of tires, hoses, wires & cables etc. Further it is used as flame retardant synergist in the production of expandedpolystyrene (EPS) which will catalyze the flame retardant action in case of heating. Further it can be used for the (co)polymerization of styrene for temperatures between 110-165 °Cs.
