n-Octyl acrylate

NOAA(n-Octyl acrylate) is a long chain Alkyl acrylate that can replace synthetic Ethylhexyl Acrylate in most applications with 72% biobased content. Due to its reactivity and physical properties, finds utility in the manufacturing of adhesives, paints, sealants, plastics, rubber, elastomers, and other polymer materials. It can polymerize into high-molecular-weight compounds through chemical reactions such as […]


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 […]
