Vazo™ Free Radical Initiators for Structural Components

Creating Strength During Production

Certain polymeric structural components require the use of azo initiators to begin polymerization or cross-linking during their production. As the longest-lived and most established azo brand, Vazo™ initiators are used in the creation of structural components such as:

  • Carbon fibers
  • Flooring
  • Composite woods
  • Densified plastic
  • Rigid foams for wind turbines and ship cladding
  • Plastic sheeting such as protective glass
  • Automotive gaskets and seals

The correct Vazo™ initiator for your application depends on a number of factors, including the specifications of your reaction and your desired outcome.

The Chemours Company has been a reliable partner and supplier of Vazo™ initiators for decades, and has both technical and product stewardship teams available to provide assistance. Contact us for technical information or guidance about product selection.
