2-Hydroxypropyl Methacrylate (2-HPMA)

2-Hydroxypropyl Methacrylate (2-HPMA) is an ester of Methacrylic acid and is used as a raw material component in the synthesis of polymers. The ester is a functional monomer consisting of a methacrylate group with a characteristic high reactivity and a cyclic hydrophobic group. It forms a homopolymer and copolymers with acrylic acid and its salts, amides, and esters, as well as with methacrylates, acrylonitrile, maleic acid esters, vinyl acetate, vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride, styrene, butadiene, and other monomers.

2-Hydroxypropyl Methacrylate (2-HPMA) easily entering into the reaction of accession with a wide range of organic and inorganic substances, is used for the synthesis of organic low molecular weight substances.

The introduction of 2-Hydroxypropyl Methacrylate (2-HPMA) in polymers provides them with: 

  • Chemical resistance
  • Hydraulic stability
  • Hydrophobicity
  • Flexibility
  • Adhesion
  • Shock resistance
  • Weather resistance

To prevent polymerization, 2-Hydroxypropyl Methacrylate (2-HPMA) should always be stored in air, and never under inert gases. For the stabilizer to work effectively, oxygen is required. It must contain a stabilizer. Storage temperature should not exceed 35 °C. Under these conditions, the storage stability of one year can be expected. To minimize the likelihood of congestion, the storage procedure should strictly follow the principle of “first come, first come”. For a long shelf life of more than 4 weeks, it is advisable to replenish the oxygen content. Over time, the content of ethylene glycol diacrylate slowly increases. If this component is relevant to your process, 2-Hydroxypropyl Methacrylate (2-HPMA) should be used within 6 months of receipt. The preferred material for tanks and pipes is stainless steel. Carbon steel is also used, although rust formation may occur, which will lead to a problem with product quality (color). Iron (III) -ion has been shown to be a weak initiator of polymerization. If carbon steel is to be used, special treatment should be used to prepare the tank for use. Storage tanks, pumps, and pipes must be earthed.

Safety

2-Hydroxypropyl Methacrylate (2-HPMA) is a combustible substance. With intense healing, it forms explosive vapors with air. Vapors are heavier than air and may spread along with floors. In case of fire formation of harmful gaseous products is possible. Contact with skin may cause an allergic reaction. Flash-point is 101 °C. The ignition temperature is 355 °C. When working with 2-Hydroxypropyl Methacrylate (2-HPMA), sanitary rules for organizing technological processes and hygienic requirements for production equipment must be strictly observed. All types of work with GPMA should be carried out in rooms equipped with general supply and exhaust ventilation. It is not allowed to carry out work in these rooms using an open fire. Those working with 2-Hydroxypropyl Methacrylate (2-HPMA) should be provided with special clothing and personal protective equipment. In case of fire, it is necessary to use fire extinguishers OP-5, OVP-100 koshma, sand, asbestos cloth. 2-Hydroxypropyl Methacrylate (2-HPMA) spilled on solid soil should be covered with sand.
