Glycidyl Methacrylate

We are a distributor of the product Glycidyl Methacrylate for Eastern and Western Europe, but with excellent opportunities for export outside of Europe.

Description and uses

Small additives GMA (glycidyl methacrylate) and its derivatives to different polymeric materials improve their mechanical, optical, adhesive characteristics, chemical and atmospheric durability. GMA (glycidyl methacrylate) is used for an improvement in the quality and reaching of the optimum performance properties of varnishes and paints, natural rubbers, latexes, sealing compounds, industrial protective coatings, synthetic fibers, paper, thermoplastics, electros-laminate, structural and ion-exchange materials, used in polygraphy, automobile construction, to radio engineering and to microelectronics, biotechnology and to medicine. Characteristic property GMA is its dual functionality - due to the methacrylic and epoxy groups. This gives to it the possibility to combine the chemical properties of acrylates, reacting with styrene, by acrylates or by ethylene, and epoxies. Epoxy group GMA is capable of different chemical transformations both in the monomer and in the polymers. Its ability easily to react with different substances (amines, phenols, ketones, carbonaceous acids, which contain halogen and other.) it makes it possible to synthesize many new chemical connections.
