Isobornyl methacrylate

IBXMA(IBOMA) belongs to the class of methacrylate monofunctional monomers. It is known for its water resistance (hydrophobicity), excellent adhesion properties, High Tg, low volatility and resistance to yellowing, making it a valuable component in the formulation of adhesives, inks, and coatings. This versatile compound is often utilized in the production of high performance automotive and industrial […]

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)

2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate phosphate

Kowa’s line of specialty monomers is available to add a functional phosphate group to the acrylic backbone found in many emulsion polymer systems. Such functionality can impart adhesion promotion to various substrates, corrosion resistance, and improved film strength. Besides polymers systems, 2-HEMA-Phosphate can be used in pigment systems to promote adhesion. Also, commonly known as […]
