Global Acrylate Monomers Market: Overview
Acrylate monomers are the esters which contain vinyl group and have a wide range of applications such as coatings, paints, plastics, adhesives & sealants, printing inks and textiles. Acrylate monomers are obtained by direct esterification of polyol or alcohol. This esterification is done with methacrylic acid or acrylic acid. The major application of acrylate monomers is in the paints and coating industry. Superior durability and UV resistance, high flexibility, and gloss are the key properties of acrylates that have boosted their consumption. In adhesive and sealants acrylates and co polymers are used in manufacturing of construction and pressure sensitive adhesives. Apart from the end use industries the acrylate monomers are widely used as chemical intermediates. Use of acrylate monomers in water-based coating formulation enhances the physical properties of the formulation. It provides better water resistance, low temperature flexibility, and excellent weathering and sunlight resistance. A small amount of methacrylic acid monomer is generally added to the formulation to enhance substrate adhesion and to provide latex stability. Some acrylate monomers have an extra functional group attached to the carbon atom and based on the type of functional group they are categorized as butyl acrylate, methyl acrylate, ethyl acrylate monomers. Butyl acrylate monomers are highly consumed in the paints & coatings industry.
