Methacrylate monomers for Polymeric Additives
A dispersant is either a non-surface active polymer or a surface-active substance added to a suspension, usually a colloid, to improve particle separation and prevent settling or clumping. Dispersants normally consist of one or more emulsifiers. Polyacrylates represent one type of polymer dispersants. Monomers commonly used for these dispersants include VISIOMER® DMAPMA, MADAME™, TMAEMC, MAPTAC and MPEG methacrylates.
Polymer dispersants are widely used in many products, for example in adhesive dispersions emulsions/dispersions, detergents, photographic solutions as well as in agriculture, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. You will also find them in cleaning and polishing products.
