Plasticizers are commonly used in applications involving unsaturated polyesters. They act as solvents or carriers to deliver peroxides to the final product.

Methyl ethyl ketone peroxide (MEKP) initiates cross-linking reactions in industrial formulations, particularly in applications like gel coats for boats. To ensure optimal performance, MEKP is typically mixed with a diluent or carrier.

Eastman TXIB™ formulation additive is a popular MEKP diluent and phlegmatizer. It’s a non-phthalate solution with low viscosity and a low freezing point, which contribute to easier handling and make it a valuable addition to MEKP formulations.
