Evonik Starts up New Plant Units for Crosslinking Activators

Evonik Industries AG, Essen, Germany, has started up two new plant units for the production of crosslinking activators at its multi-user site in Wesseling, Germany. With triallyl cyanurate (TAC) and triallyl isocyanurate (Taicros), the company now offers two high-quality crosslinking activators for use in plastics and rubber.

Taicros enhances the quality of so-called EVA films, which encase the sensitive silicon cells of solar panels - and thus the solar cell as a whole - to protect them from environmental influences. Taicros ensures better crosslinking and also protects films against long-term yellowing, which means the solar cells perform well on a sustained basis. TAC is primarily used in high-quality rubber materials such as hoses and cable coatings in the automotive sector to increase aging resistance and, accordingly, the life expectancy of such items.

Thanks to the backward-integrated production system in Wesseling, the new plant units are connected to an existing
cyanuric chloride plant. Cyanuric chloride is one of the source materials for TAC and Taicros.
