VISIOMER® – METHACRYLATE MONOMERS FOR CONSTRUCTION APPLICATIONS

Application Areas

VISIOMER®
Acrylic materials based on methacrylate monomers have captured a good market share in the construction industry. They serve as binders for concrete admixtures, liquid water proofing compounds, industrial flooring and reactive road marking systems as well as concrete repair compounds. They are easy to process and cure rapidly even at low temperatures. The systems used for this purpose consist of a resin component, which contains the multi-functional methacrylates as reactive thinners, and a filler component that includes peroxide for triggering polymerization. The systems' resin content varies between 5 and 35 wt%.
Further applications for reactive resins with small amounts of multifunctional methacrylates as crosslinking agents are synthetic marble and casting compounds for bathroom fittings and kitchen sinks.
