CROSSLINKERS

Methacrylate product portfolio

VISIOMER®

Crosslinkers


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.
