Improving the performance of thousands of polymer formulations

Acrylic monomers are crucial ingredients that improve the performance of everyday products – from paints and lacquers to adhesives, water treatment products and plastics, to detergents or textile fibres.

Acrylates produced using acrylic acid are used primarily for manufacturing homopolymers and copolymers. Acrylate esters are split into two groups, heavy and light. Heavy esters include 2-ethylhexyl acrylate and butyl acrylate, and light esters include methyl acrylate and ethyl acrylate.

In this fast changing environment, innovation is key and we are committed to working in increasingly sustainable ways. A priority is the development of an exciting new bio-based and biomass product range, which could drive a major shift in our markets. We are also collaborating with our partners on a number of other sustainable solutions for tomorrow.
