Usually found in applications using unsaturated polyesters, plasticizers work as solvents or carriers that deliver peroxides to the end-use product. Many industrial formulations use MEKP (methyl ethyl ketone peroxide) to initiate cross-linking reactions for applications such as gel coats for boats. Often, MEKP is diluted with a suitable diluent or carrier. Eastman TXIB™ formulation additive is frequently chosen as an effective diluent for MEKP because of its value as a non-phthalate, low viscosity diluent with a low freezing point that contributes to easier handling.
