Hydroxyethylcaprolactone Acrylate (HECLA)

Hydroxyethylcaprolactone Acrylate (HECLA) is an ester of Acrylic acid and is used as a raw material component in the synthesis of polymers. The ester is a caprolactone modified version of Hydroxyethyl Acrylate (HEA), by incorporating an average of 2.8 moles of caprolactone per mole of Hydroxyethyl Acrylate (HEA). It forms homopolymers and copolymers which can be obtained from acrylic acid and its salts, amides, and esters, etc.

Hydroxyethylcaprolactone Acrylate (HECLA) is a very useful starting material for chemical synthesis since it easily undergoes addition reactions with a wide spectrum of organic and inorganic compounds. It is also an ideal capping agent for UV curable wear layers on PVC and parquet flooring and offering versatility in UV curable printing inks in food packaging applications.
