iso-Decyl Acrylate (IDA)

iso-Decyl Acrylate (IDA) is an ester of Acrylic acid and is used as a raw material component in the synthesis of polymers. The ester is a monofunctional monomer with a characteristic high reactivity of acrylates and a long hydrophobic moiety. It forms homopolymers and copolymers which can be obtained from acrylic acid and its salts, amides, and esters, etc.

iso-Decyl Acrylate (IDA) is a very useful feedstock for chemical syntheses because it readily undergoes addition reactions with a wide variety of organic and inorganic compounds.

Features & Benefits: 

  • Hydrophobicity
  • Chemical resistance
  • Low shrinkage
  • Good wetting
  • Impact strength
  • Weatherability
  • Low Tg

Applications: 

  • Widely used in thermal and radcure coatings where it confers good impact strength and flexibility.
  • Used n pressure-sensitive adhesives and repositionable labels and tapes.
  • Used in inks and overprint varnishes.

In order to prevent polymerization, iso-Decyl Acrylate F (IDA F) must always be stored under air, and never under inert gases. The presence of oxygen is required for the stabilizer to function effectively. It has to contain a stabilizer and the storage temperature must not exceed 35 °C. Under these conditions, a storage stability of one year can be expected upon delivery. In order to minimize the likelihood of overstorage, the storage procedure should strictly follow the “first-in-first-out” principle. For extended storage periods over 4 weeks it is advisable to replenish the dissolved oxygen content. The preferred construction material for tanks and pipes is stainless steel. Carbon steel is also acceptable, although the formation of rust may be a problem with product quality (color). Iron(III)-ions have been shown to be a weak polymerization initiator. If carbon steel is to be used, special procedures should be used to prepare the tank for use. Storage tanks, pumps and pipes should be earthed.
