Acrylic Monomers

Acrylic acid and its esters are perhaps the most versatile monomers for improving performance characteristics of thousands of polymer formulations. Incorporation of varying percentages of acrylic monomers permits the production of thousands of formulations for latex and solution copolymers, copolymer plastics and cross-linkable polymer systems.

Their performance characteristics impart varying degrees of tackiness, durability, hardness and glass transition temperatures. Major markets for acrylate esters include

Our monomers include Acrylic Acid (AA and GAA) and 4 basic esters of AA:

  • Acrylic Acid (AA)
  • Glacial Acrylic Acid (GAA)
  • Methyl Acrylate (MA)
  • Ethyl Acrylate (EA)
  • Butylacrylate(BA)
  • 2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate (2-EHA)
