Photoinitiator TPO Product Information
• Product Name: 2,4,6-trimethylbenzoyldiphenyl phosphine oxide (TPO)
• CAS NO.: 75980-60-8
• EINECS No.: 278-355-8
• Molecular Formula: C22H21O2P
• Molecular mass: 348.382 g/mol
• Key Properties: Low odor, low yellowing
As an efficient photoinitiator, the photolysis products of 2,4,6-trimethylbenzoyldiphenyl phosphine oxide (TPO) are three methyl benzoyl free radical and two phenyl phosphonyl free radical, which are both free radicals with high initiating activity. The absorption wavelength of the photodissociation product moves to the short wave, and has the effect of photobleaching, which is beneficial to the ultraviolet light transmission, and can be used for the curing of thick coating.
Usually 1-5% is used ration for polimerization. The thermal stability of TPO is excellent. It is heated to 180℃ without chemical reaction and has good storage stability. Although 2,4,6-trimethylbenzoyldiphenyl phosphine oxide (TPO) has its own light yellow, it becomes colorless after photolysis and does not change yellowing.
