Glycidyl Methacrylate (GMA)

Glycidyl Methacrylate (GMA) is an ester of Methacrylic Acid and Glycidol. The ester is used for improving the quality and reaching the optimum performance properties of varnishes and paints, natural rubbers, latexes, sealing compounds, industrial protective coatings, synthetic fibers, paper, thermoplastics, structural and ion-exchange materials, used in polygraphy, automobile construction, radio engineering and microelectronics, biotechnology and in medicine.

The characteristic of the property of Glycidyl Methacrylate (GMA) is its dual functionality – due to the methacrylic and epoxy groups. This gives it the possibility to combine the chemical properties of acrylates, reacting with styrene, by acrylates or by ethylene, and epoxies. The epoxy group of Glycidyl Methacrylate (GMA) is capable of different chemical transformations both in the monomer and in the polymers. Its ability easily to react with different substances (amines, phenols, ketones, carbonaceous acids, which contain halogen and others). It makes it possible to synthesize many new chemical connections.

Small additives of the monomer and its derivatives to different polymeric materials improve their mechanical, optical, adhesive characteristics, chemical, and atmospheric durability.
