StyroStar® S6 42 SELECT

StyroStar® S6-42 SELECT is designed for the dehydro-genation of ethylbenzene to styrene. Its outstanding features include excellent activity, selectivity, and mechanical strength. Like its proven predecessor, StyroStar® S6-42, the new S6-42 SELECT is a robust and durable catalyst, combining excellent mechanical properties with an exceptionally low monthly decline rate. In particular, S6-42 SELECT has an improved performance in terms of activity (ca. 2 K) and selectivity (ca. 0.2 wt %) dependent on conditions. Also, like S6-42, the formation of by-products is very low.
