Global Iso-Tridecyl Methacrylate Market: Overview
Iso-tridecyl methacrylate is a methacrylate monomer. It is hydrophobic and mono-functional. It exhibits low glass transition temperature. Hence, it is flexible, and offers excellent plasticizing properties. Iso-tridecyl methacrylate can be used to form homopolymers and copolymers with acrylic acid and its salts, amides and esters, acrylates, acrylonitrile, unsaturated polyesters, and drying oils. It is one of the commonly used feedstock for chemical synthesis, as its addition reaction with a range of organic and inorganic compounds is easy. Iso-tridecyl methacrylate monomers are useful raw materials in the production of anaerobic adhesives, vacuum impregnation sealants, and acrylic polyols for automotive coatings.
The use of iso-tridecyl methacrylate monomer helps achieve low viscosity, low odor, and low shrinkage on polymerization. It also helps in imparting properties such as chemical/water resistance, impact strength, hydrophobicity, adhesion, and weatherability. Storage of iso-tridecyl methacrylate is a major concern. It needs to be stored carefully, meeting all the requirements in order to avoid its polymerization. The monomer must always be stored with a stabilizer in cold conditions, with temperature not exceeding 35°C. For the stabilizer to function effectively, it must always be stored under air, and never in inert gases. The maximum duration for which iso-tridecyl methacrylate can be stored is one year. Coatings, adhesives, sealants, and polymer production are some of the common applications of iso-tridecyl methacrylate. The iso-tridecyl methacrylate market is anticipated to expand significantly in Asia Pacific in the near future. It is estimated to offer lucrative opportunities to producers of the monomer, owing to the growth of application industries such as coatings, adhesives, and sealants in the region.
