Glycidyl Methacrylate (GMA) Purity: 98min
Glycidyl Methacrylate (GMA) is a high purity, dual functionality monomer ideally suited for coating and resin applications. The most important feature of GMA monomer is its versatility the benefit is that the formulator or polymer manufacturer can tailor an end product to meet a wide variety of demanding specifications.
Characteristic Related Benefits
Allows copolymerization functionality with a variety of other vinyl monomers in aqueous and nonaqueous systems.
Resulting polymers feature a unique combination of epoxy functionality with an acrylic backbone.
Wide comonomer selection provides easy control of physical and chemical properties such as Tg and solution viscosity.
Enables crosslinking reactions with amines, carboxylic acids, anhydrides and hydroxyl-containing polymers.
Proper accelerator/catalyst choice allows use of a wide range of cure temperatures and schedules.
Allows structural modification of the polymer backbone that can result in differentiated properties and higher performance.
Versatility for Polymer Chemistry
GMA contains both acrylic and epoxy groups, providing you with the design and performance versatility required for the most demanding coating and resin applications.
The dual functionality of GMA brings together the chemical resistance of an epoxy with the weather ability of an acrylic, making GMA an excellent choice for use as a comonomer in the following applications:
Radiation Curable Coatings
Waterborne Coatings Resins
Industrial & Protective Finishes
Appliance & Hardware Finishes
Hydrogenated LER Substitutes
Plastic Modifiers (PVC, PET, Engineering Thermoplastics, Rubber)
