Manufacturing landscape of styrene production and styrene polymerization inhibitor technology.

Styrene Polymerization Control

During styrene production, controlling polymerization minimizes fouling and monomer loss and protects the unit during an emergency shutdown. Historically, slow-reacting, highly toxic dinitrophenols have been widely used by the industry to control polymerization. Nalco Water provides greatly improved styrene polymerization inhibitor and control technology for the styrene industry through its innovative PRISM™ program.
