Methacrylate product portfolio

VISIOMER®

Basic Methacrylates


Basic methacrylates such as VISIOMER® MMA, n-BMA and i-BMA are used as building blocks in a wide range of applications, such as paints, reactive resins, waterborne coatings, adhesives and many others. These monomers provide very good exterior durability and color stability. VISIOMER® MMA, which has a glass transition temperature of 105 °C, is used wherever hardness and thermo-mechanical stability is needed. VISIOMER® n-BMA and i-BMA, on the other hand, provide flexibility due to softening temperatures of 20 °C and 50 °C. VISIOMER® GMAA is used as building block in applications like paints, dispersions or construction chemicals. It confers specific properties, such as improved freeze-thaw resistance, colloidal stability in emulsion, and enhanced film adhesion.
