VISIOMER®

Ether Methacrylates


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.
