MSP v.2 (Styrenated phenol) is a substance made up of a mixture of products of phenol and styrene reaction: primarily monostyrenated, distyrenated and tristyrenated phenol. This product is soluble in the majority of organic solvents, but it is difficult to disolve in water. It is a colourless to bright yellow liquid. The dynamic viscosity of MSP v.2 at the temperature of 250C ranges between 400-800 mPa.s. The product boiling temperature is over 2400C, and its flash point is above 1000C. The density of the substance at the temperature of 250C is approximately 1.08 g/cm3.
MSP v.2 is a product of the phenol and styrene reaction in the presence of acidic ion exchange resin, a catalyst. Subsequently, for the derivation and purification of MSP, the post-reaction mixture is subject to distillation in a deep vacuum.
MSP v.2 (Styrenated phenol) is used as a non-staining and non-discolouring antioxidant the rubber industry and in the production of plastics. It is also used as a diluent additive for epoxy paints and polymers. It is characterised by very good hardening acceleration action, low viscosity and high compatibility.
