Lauryl Methacrylate 1214 F (LMA 1214 F)

Lauryl Methacrylate 1214 F (LMA 1214 F) 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 homopolymers and copolymers which can be obtained acrylic acid and its salts, amides, and esters, as well as methacrylates, acrylonitrile, maleic esters, butadiene, and other monomers.

Product type: Methacrylate Monomer.

Lauryl Methacrylate 1214 F (LMA 1214 F) is a very useful starting material for chemical synthesis since it easily subjected to additional 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.

The introduction of Lauryl Methacrylate 1214 F (LMA 1214 F) in polymers provides them with:

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

The areas of applications:

  • Lauryl Methacrylate 1214 F (LMA 1214 F) is used in oil additives for improving fluidity, floor waxes, textile and metal coatings, paints, varnishes, pressure-sensitive adhesives, and low-temperature sealants, as well as for the production of solid polymers, aqueous dispersions, and polymer solutions, which are used in various industries.

It is applied in the production of:

  • 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.

In order to prevent polymerization, Lauryl Methacrylate 1214 F (LMA 1214 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-firstout” principle. 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.
