Butyl methacrylate BMA

Cas No.: 97-88-1
MF: C8H14O2
Other name: n-Butyl methacrylate
Properties & Applications & PackagesInquiry
BMA is a colorless liquid, it is a common monomer for the preparation of methacrylate polymers. It is typically polymerized under free-radical conditions.

Butyl methacrylate is a versatile, plasticizing methacrylate monomer that acts as an important building block in many copolymer compositions. Serving as a base for acrylic resins, BMA provides exceptional weather resistance, high gloss, color retention, and durability. BMA contributes more intermediate glass transition and hardness values, with a glass transition temperature (Tg) of 20 °C.

n-Butyl methacrylate is used as a monomer for resins, solvent coatings, adhesives, oil additives, emulsions for textiles, leather, and paper finishing and in the manufacture of contact lenses . It is also used in dental resins, oil dispersible pesticides, and acrylic surface coatings and as copolymers, for example, in paraffin embedding media .
It can also be sued for manufacturing of artificial nails, leather, and paper finishing.
