VISIOMER® offers a unique modular system for tailoring desired product properties in various end use applications. The standard product range covers basic methacrylates, alkyl/aryl methacrylates, hydroxyesters, aminofunctional monomers, methacrylamides, ether methacrylates, crosslinkers, wet adhesion monomers, specialty methacrylates, and specialty cyanohydrins.
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 adhesionVISIOMER® MMAVISIOMER® GMAAVISIOMER® n-BMAVISIOMER® i-BMA
Hydroxyesters are recommended for heat or room temperature cured coatings with permanent marring and solvent resistance, high gloss retention and weatherability. Hydroxyfunctional prepolymers, for example, can be crosslinked via melamine resins, blocked isocyanates (onecomponent systems), or multifunctional isocyanates (two-component systems). Hydroxyesters also serve as adhesion promoters in reactive resins for bonding to metal surfaces.VISIOMER® HEMA 97VISIOMER® HEMA 98VISIOMER® HPMA 97VISIOMER® HPMA 98
VISIOMER® UHP HEMA enables the production of dimensionally stable soft contact lenses with high oxygen permeability and water uptake to ensure optimum wear comfort.VISIOMER® UHP HEMA
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.VISIOMER® EHMAVISIOMER® IDMAVISIOMER® Terra C 13-MAVISIOMER® Terra C 17-MAVISIOMER® CHMAVISIOMER® IBOAVISIOMER® Terra IBOMAVISIOMER® BNMA
These products are characterized by a minimum of two polymerizable groups in one molecule. Polymerization leads to crosslinked and insoluble structures. Allyl methacrylate offers exceptional performance with two double bonds of different reactivity, allowing graft copolymerization in emulsions. Crosslinkers are ideally suited for hot and cold curing reactive adhesives and for peroxide crosslinking of high performance elastomers due to their low volatility and high reactivity.VISIOMER® AMAVISIOMER® EGDMAVISIOMER® TRGDMAVISIOMER® PEG200DMAVISIOMER® 1,3-BDDMAVISIOMER® 1,4-BDDMAVISIOMER® 1,6-HDDMAVISIOMER® GDMAVISIOMER® TMPTMAVISIOMER® HEMATMDI
The favorable solution property of the ether functionality is combined with the high monomer reactivity of the methacrylate functionality. Unbranched ether methacrylates behave as internal plasticizers and provide polymers with very low glass transition temperatures. Due to their low volatility, VISIOMER® ETMA, THFMA and BDGMA can be used as reactive diluents for reactive systems. Long polyether side chains make the corresponding polymers water-soluble and capable of ion chelation.VISIOMER® ETMAVISIOMER® THFMAVISIOMER® BDGMAVISIOMER® C18 PEG 1105 MA WVISIOMER® MPEG 750 MA WVISIOMER® MPEG 1005 MA WVISIOMER® MPEG 2005 MA WVISIOMER® MPEG 5005 MA W
Predominantly used in their quaternized form, these products provide water-soluble cationic polymers. Combining these products with either hydrophilic or hydrophobic co-monomers results in a wide variation of the physical properties of the resulting polymers. Copolymers containing these monomers are excellent flocculation agents and can furthermore be used as cationic thickeners.VISIOMER® MADAMEVISIOMER® DMAPMAVISIOMER® TMAEMCVISIOMER® MAPTAC
Combinations of methacrylamide and acetal-modified methacrylamides are recommended for heat-activated self-crosslinking resins. VISIOMER® MAAmide alone can be used as a polar co-monomer with a high Tg for improving solvent resistance and cohesion. For specific applications, methacrylamide can be grafted onto natural fibers (silk weighting).VISIOMER® MAAMIDEVISIOMER® N-MMAA
The benefit of our VISIOMER® MEEU ureidofunctional monomer becomes evident in emulsion polymers that are able to provide desired wet adhesion properties. It improves the adhesion properties of the emulsion polymers, especially on wood or aged alkyd paint surfaces, as well as the wet scrub resistance of the final products.VISIOMER® MEEU 50 WVISIOMER® MEEU 25 M
