Butyl Acrylate (BA)
[Raw materials] - Acrylic acid, Normal Butanol
[Finished products] - Fiber processing agents, adhesives, paints, synthetic resins, acrylic rubber, emulsion, substitute for glass, window frames, lighting equipment, office supplies, daily necessities
Butyl Acrylate is a chemical that is created by esterifying acrylic acid and normal butanol. Acrylic Acid is mainly used for creating homopolymers and copolymer. (examples: Acrylic Acid, Ester, Amide, Methacrylic Acid, Acrylonitrile, Maleic Acid, Vinyl Acetate, Vinyl Chloride, Vinylidene Chloride, Styrene, Butadiene, Unsaturated polyester resin).
The created homopolymer and copolymer are then changed to base ingredients of fiber treating agent, glue, paint, synthetic resin, acrylic rubber, emulsion.
Resin that is polymerized with acrylic acid and methacrylic acid and its ester is called acrylic resin. Acrylic resin is transparent so it is used as a substitute for glass goods (examples: window frames, lighting equipment, office supplies).
Acrylic acid that is liquidized or polymerized into wax is used as a base material for acrylic resin due to its colorability.
Aqueous acrylic paint is created by acrylic emulsion. Acrylic resin that is emulsified is used for creating glue.
