Delivering safe, reliable and high-performing monomers across industries
From food packaging to coatings for vehicles and appliances, acrylate, methacrylate, GMA, hydroxy and other specialty monomers are essential building blocks for countless downstream industries. They provide selection, quality and consistency in dispersions and emulsions for adhesives, coatings, inks, woven and non-woven textiles, plastics and polymers, and superabsorbent products.
- Performance monomers are used in a wide variety of industrial and consumer products, including emulsion polymers, resins, adhesives, coatings, textiles, wire and cable, polyethylene compounds, laminated safety glass, packaging, automotive plastic fuel tanks, acrylic fibers, chewing gum base, water treatment, oil and gas, and intermediates used in paints.
- Specialty monomers improve chemical and physical properties in acrylic polyols, caprolactone monomers, printing plates, adhesives, thermosetting paints, sealants, binders, finish coatings for vehicles and appliances, textile fiber gratings, light-curing polymer systems and more.
- Glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) provides dual functionality of both methacrylic and epoxy groups, delivering the chemical resistance of an epoxy with the weatherability of an acrylic.
- Silane monomers add reactive funcationality when modifying organic polymers in applications such as moisture-cure chemistry.
