Tetrahydrofurfuryl acrylate

THFA is a low cost, biodegradable solvent/adjuvant with many agricultural and industrial applications. Some important properties of THFA are water-miscibility, low odor, low vapor pressure and evaporation rate, high solvency for active ingredients, low freezing point, high flash point (183ºF/84ºC) and low viscosity even at reduced temperatures. BRC% is 62% ※BRC % stands for Bio renewable […]

Isobornyl acrylate

IBXA is a mono-functional reactive diluent that polymerizes when exposed to sources of free radicals. The bicyclic structure of IBXA produces polymers of increased Tg, while its mono-functionality minimizes cross-linking to provide coatings and inks with good hardness, resiliency, flexibility and impact resistance. IBXA is recommended for coatings requiring flexibility, hardness & thermal resistance, maintaining high […]

Zinc (Meth)Acrylate-LIQUID

Our Zinc (Meth)Acrylate is solvent soluble liquid (Math) Acrylate. Good adhesion to metal surface.  It contributes to transparent, High refractive index, heat resistance, adhesion.    

Stearyl acrylate

STA is non-crosslinkable, low-viscosity monofunctional monomer used as a reactive diluent for radiation and peroxide cure application. Applications include paints, coatings, adhesives, sealants, textile treatment agent, lubricating oil, and internal plasticizer. BRC% is 85% ※BRC % stands for Bio renewable Carbon ratio. = (Bio sourced Carbon)*100 / (Bio soused carbon + Fossil Carbon)

Dimethyl carbonate

Dimethyl carbonate (DMC) is used as a VOC-exempt solvent in many paints and coatings. It is a fast evaporating polar solvent and can replace esters, glycol ethers and ketones in formulations. DMC can be used as a methylating and carbonylating reagent in organic synthesis.


PCBTF is a colorless, VOC-exempt solvent widely used in coatings and inks, dissolving most inks faster than toluene. Synonyms: parachlorobenzotrifluoride, p-Chlorotrifluoromethylbenzene, (p-Chlorophenyl) trifluoromethane, 4-Chloro- α,α,α-trifluorotoluene


Our Copolymer PCD(Poly carbonate diol) is liquid at room temperature, and offers heat/hydrolysis/chemical/abrasion resistance, good softness and lower crystallinity.  The solubility and elasticity are also excellent comparing to standard solid homopolymer PUD. T5652, G4672 and G3452 have 400-900% solubility for measure solvents(Toluene, DMF, Ethyl acetate MEK etc.) This product is recommended for polyurethane dispersions, polyurethane […]
