We are a major distributor of Methacrylic Acid, Glacial for Eastern and Western Europe, but with excellent opportunities for export outside of Europe.
Methacrylic acid can be readily polymerized, its presence in copolymers reduces the softening temperature and ardness. It also improves adhesion of surface coatings and adhesives. Because Methacrylic acid is a carboxylic acid, it can be converted by conventional methods into methacrylates, N-substituted methacryl amides, methacrylamide, N-substituted methacryl amides and acryloyl chloride.
Polymers containing methacrylic acid are used in a wide number of applications including:
Acrylic Latices | Dispersions/Emulsions | Paper & Water | Reactive Systems | Resins, Acrylic | Resins, Ion Exchange | Resins, Phenolic
Detailed safety information is contained in each material data safety sheet, which can be obtained from our sales offices.
