VISIOMER® Terra - Methacrylate monomers based on bio-renewable raw materials
Methacrylate monomers based on bio-renewable raw materials
The VISIOMER® Terra product family
Our high-solid monomer VISIOMER® Terra IBOMA offers a partially bio-based raw material source and brings environmental benefits to the end use applications as well. Its main raw material, camphene, is made from 100% renewable feedstock. Camphene is mainly produced from pine tree resin, which can be harvested without harming the pine trees. VISIOMER® Terra IBOMA enables the formulation of environmentally friendly paint resins with a lower volatile organic compound (VOC) content, and reduces resin viscosity.
VISIOMER® C13-MA and VISIOMER® Terra C17.4-MA improve water repellency and resistance against polar solvents, and are typically used to increase the hydrophobicity of resins. Both products are based on raw materials recovered from natural oils.
