Rooted in our founders’ extensive experience in the technical field and in sales, Promox started its operations in 1985 in its Leggiuno plant, by Varese (Italy).
Ketone peroxides are widely used in curing unsaturated polyester resins, in that they allow polymerisation at room temperature and without the need of pressure or heat.
Unsaturated polyester resins are, among plastics, the easiest to polymerise without the need for high temperature or pressure: this is why they have found applications in numerous sectors.
Our many formulations of ketone peroxides have been perfected and customised so as to respond to the needs of the sector and its many production cycles. Our quality and the broad range of our products available today, together with qualified technical customer service offered to the clients, make of Promox the ideal partner for solving existing issues and for the development of new technologies in the field of unsaturated polyester resins.
Promox promoted peracetic acid in Italy as an innovative and effective alternative to other oxidisers/disinfectants which, as recent technical scientific research demonstrated, show limits in applications, manipulation and dosing, and have a strong impact on human health and the environment.
PAA is an organic peroxide containing, in its molecule, the typical functional group (-O-O-), giving it specific physical and chemical properties. The molecule is obtained, in general, by reacting acetic acid with hydrogen peroxide, until the desired balance is reached. Hydrogen peroxide frees oxidising ions which react, in a controlled environment, with acetic acid to form peracetic acid.
