Description and uses

Reactive with other monomers and imparting strength and durability to acrylic copolymers, methyl acrylate is a useful monomer for a variety of applications, including coatings for leather, paper, floor coverings and textiles. Resins containing this monomer can also be formulated as elastomers, adhesives, thickeners, amphoteric surfactants, fibers and plastics. Methyl Acrylate is also used in production of monomers used to make water treatment materials and in chemical synthesis.
