VISIOMER® – methacrylate monomers for plastics

Application Areas

VISIOMER®

Methacrylate monomers are used in the production and modification of a wide variety of polymers – mainly in cast sheet, methacrylate molding compounds and graft copolymers as impact modifiers for thermoplastics. Further application fields include artificial marble, PVC modifiers and PVC plastisols. Molding compounds based on unsaturated polyester resins may also contain multifunctional methacrylates as crosslinking agents.

In addition, methacrylates are used as comonomers to improve the performance of polymers in extrusion coating applications. Typical end-use applications, here, include liquid carton packaging, photographic paper, flexible and commercial packaging (e.g. coffee pouches).
