X-CLARITY™ Polymerization Initiator is a thermal free radical initiator also known as VA-044. VA-044 is relatively stable at room temperature but undergoes rapid hemolytic decomposition when heated in aqueous solution, releasing cationic free radicals that initiate the polymerization of hydrogel monomers.
