Syrgis Performance Initiators, previously Norac Inc. and Norac Andos AB, produces organic peroxide initiators for the fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites (fiberglass) industry. Syrgis Performance Initiators is the #1 producer of methyl ethyl ketone peroxides in North America and ranked third in the world in organic peroxides for plastics and reinforced thermoset composites. The company manufactures a broad line of premium ketone and diacyl peroxides from its state-of-the-art production facilities located in Helena, Arkansas, and Köpmanholmen, Sweden.

  • Ketone Peroxides: These products are the workhorses of the ambient temperature cure processes. Included are Methyl Ethyl Ketone Peroxides (MEKP), Acetyl Acetone Peroxide (AAP), and Methyl Isobutyl Ketone Peroxide (MIBKP). These formulations enable almost every type of cure process.
  • Peroxide Mixtures: Some difficult cure applications require a blend of ketone peroxide with other peroxides, such as hydroperoxides, peroxyesters, and peroxyketals. Syrgis currently offers a range of commercial mixtures for ambient and elevated temperature cure.
  • Hydroperoxides: Cumene Hydroperoxide (CHP), Dicumyl Peroxide (DCP) and t-Butyl Hydroperoxide (70%) have applications in composites curing, vinyl polymer polymerization and crosslinking.
  • Diacyl Peroxides: Benzoyl peroxide is known for its unusual stability and performance in applications such as auto body fillers, specialty ambient and elevated temperature cure composites processes, and styrene polymerization. Products come in granular (water-wet), paste and liquid suspension forms, and all paste and liquid suspension formulations are free of any phthalate ester diluents (plasticizers).
  • Peroxyesters, Peroxyketals and Peroxydicarbonates: An extensive line of these products is available from Syrgis for elevated temperature curing of polyester resin composites. (Availability varies by country and region due to transportation regulations.)
