Acrylate monomers

Acrylate monomers and their application in paint industry

Acrylate monomers used to form acrylate polymers are based on the structure of acrylic acid, which consists of a vinyl group and a carboxylic acid ester end or a nitrile. Other common acrylate monomers are derivatives of acrylic acid, such as methyl methacrylate in which a vinyl hydrogen and a carboxylic acid hydrogen are both replaced by methyl groups, and acrylonitrile in which the carboxylic acid group is replaced by the corresponding nitrile group.
Acrylates are salts, esters and conjugated bases of acrylic acid. Often, acrylate refers to esters of acrylic acid, the most common member of which is methyl acrylate. These acrylates contain vinyl groups. The vinyl group is prone to polymerization and the carboxylate group has many functional groups. Modified acrylates are also numerous, some examples of methacrylates and cyanoacrylates can also refer to polyacrylates prepared through the polymerization of vinyl groups of acrylate monomers.
Butyl acrylate is an organic compound that is a colorless liquid, it is the butyl ester of acrylic acid. It is used commercially on a large scale as a precursor to polybutylacrylate, which is used in paints, sealants, coatings, adhesives, fuels, textiles, plastics, and sealants.
