VISIOMER®

Alkyl/Aryl (Meth)acrylates


Alkyl methacrylate monomers are primarily used as building blocks for polymeric binders, generally known as synthetic resins. The excellent weather resistance of methacrylate polymers results from their purely aliphatic structure and effective steric hindrance of the polymer chains. There is hardly any oxidative degradation or ester hydrolysis in methacrylate polymers, as impressively demonstrated by the longevity of acrylic glass products. With our range of monomers, polymer softening temperatures can be adjusted from approx. -70 °C to 150 °C. Polymers of long-chain esters, such as VISIOMER® C17.4-MA, show waxlike polymer properties in their natural state. Esters with bulky side chains provide solution polymers with reduced viscosity, thus allowing a higher solids content.
