Methacrylic Acid, Glacial

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

Description and uses

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:

  • ion exchange
  • surface coatings
  • auxiliaries for leather and textile industry
  • flocculants
  • soil improvers (poly-electrolytes)
