Allyl Methacrylate (AMA)

Allyl Methacrylate (AMA) is an ester of Methacrylic acid and is used as a raw material component in the synthesis of polymers. The ester is a monomer of dual allylic and methacrylic functionalities consisting of a methacrylate group with a characteristic high reactivity and a cyclic hydrophobic group.  It forms homopolymers and copolymers which can be obtained from acrylic acid and its salts, amides, and esters, etc. The monomer is a very useful starting material for chemical synthesis since it easily undergoes addition reactions with a wide spectrum of organic and inorganic compounds.

Allyl Methacrylate (AMA) is water-insoluble, with low volatility. It is used in oil additives as flow improver, in-floor waxes, textile and metal coatings, paint, varnishes, pressure-sensitive adhesives, low temperature caulks and sealants.
