Lauryl Methacrylate 1215 (LMA 1215)

Lauryl Methacrylate 1215 (LMA 1215) is an ester of Methacrylic Acid and is used as a raw material component in the synthesis of polymers. The ester is a monofunctional monomer consisting of a methacrylate group with a characteristic high reactivity and a cyclic hydrophobic group. It forms homopolymers and copolymers which can be obtained from acrylic acid and its salts, amides, and esters, etc.

Lauryl Methacrylate 1215 (LMA 1215) is a very useful starting material for chemical synthesis since it easily undergoes addition reactions with a wide range of organic and inorganic compounds. It is a water-insoluble, with low volatility monomer that is used in oil additives as flow improver, in-floor waxes, textile and metal coatings, paint, varnishes, pressure-sensitive adhesives, low temperature caulks and sealants.

Features & Benefits: 

  • Hydrophobicity
  • Low shrinkage
  • Weather resistance
  • Water/Chemical resistance
  • Flexibility
  • Improved impact strength
  • Adhesion

Applications: 

  • Oil additives as a flow improver, in-floor waxes, textile and metal coatings, varnishes, adhesives, low temperature caulks and sealants.
  • As a co-monomer in paint resins, elastomers, and plastics.
  • Stabilizer in non-aqueous dispersions and inks.
  • Electronics and encapsulated products, or as a chemical intermediate.
