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 elongation in urethane acrylates, and screen inks and coating requiring increased adhesion to polyolefins.
