AAEM is a specialty methacrylic monomer with three available sites for chemical reaction. AAEM is used to formulate high solids solution acrylic resins and acrylic emulsions for lower VOC emission high performance industrial and architectural coatings. The methacrylic functionality may be used to react AAEM into an acrylic polymer backbone, leaving an acetoacetyl group pendant to […]
ACTFLOW is a non-solvent functional and reactive acrylic polymer of low-molecular weight that has come out of molecular weight control technology. Due to environmentally sound characteristics as a non-solvent liquid polymer and excellent normal-temperature fluidity, ACTFLOW is recommended as a plasticizer replacement, modifying agent and additive agent.
HPA is a hydroxyl functional acrylic monomer used in high performance coating applications. HPA can be used to attach hydroxyl groups to an acrylic polymer backbone to create sites for reaction with a variety of cross-linking agents. Compared with hydroxyalkyl methacrylates, HPA allows faster curing cycles and reduced baking temperatures. It can also be formulated at […]
With two reactive functional groups in the molecule, MBAA easily reacts with other monomers such as acrylamide and acrylic acid, and is widely used as a cross-linking agent for a variety of polymers. Recent applications include photosensitive resins, super-absorbent resins, resins for medical uses, immobilation of micro-organisms and gel for electrophoresis and chromatography.
HEMA is an ester of methacrylic acid, soluble in water and has relatively low volatility. It copolymerizes easily with a variety of monomers, incorporates cross-link sites, imparts corrosion, fogging and abrasion resistance, and the hydroxyl group improves adhesion. It is also a key raw material for acrylic polyols.
HEA is a hydroxy functional acrylic monomer which can be used in a variety of ways to produce resins that are useful in high performance coating applications. Using typical methods for the polymerization of ethylenically unsaturated monomers, HEA can be used to attach hydroxy groups to an acrylic polymer backbone. The pendant hydroxyl groups can then […]
