StyroStar® S6-62

StyroStar® S6-62 is designed for the dehydrogenation of ethylbenzene to styrene in particular for medium and high s/o ratio conditions.

Its outstanding features include excellent activity, selectivity, and mechanical strength. Like its proven predecessor, Catalyst S6-60, the new S6-62 is a robust and durable catalyst, combining excellent mechanical properties with an exceptionally low monthly decline rate. Compared to FlexiCat Gold-2 and FlexiCat Select 2, StyroStar® S6-62 has a significantly higher catalyst activity and is the catalyst of choice for long runs with excellent selectivity.
