2 Ethyl Hexyl Acrylate
Is a colorless liquid acrylate with a sweet odor.
2-Ethylhexyl acrylate and butyl acrylate are the major base monomers for the preparation of acrylate adhesives.
2-Ethylhexyl acrylate can react by free-radical polymerization to form macromolecules having a molecular weight of up to 200,000 g/mol. Other monomers such as vinyl acetate, methyl acrylate, and styrene may be copolymerized to modify the properties of the resulting polymer.
