To avoid crosslinking before the compound is shaped, a problem known as scorch, the onset of cure must be timed appropriately [7], This can be challenging, since peroxide thermolysis is a relatively slow, first-order decomposition that controls the rate of subsequent radical reactions [8], Cure rates are, therefore, fastest in the early stages, and methods of suppressing radical concentrations during this initial phase can be an important process design consideration.
