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: 

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