2-(Methacryloyloxy)ethyl acetoacetate

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 […]

2-hydroxyethyl acrylate

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 […]
