Methyl Acrylate (MA)

Methyl Acrylate (MA) is an ester of Acrylic acid and is used as a raw material component in the synthesis of polymers. It forms a homopolymer and copolymers with acrylic acid and its salts, amides, and esters, as well as methacrylates, acrylonitrile, maleic esters, vinyl acetate, vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride, styrene, butadiene, and other monomers.

Methyl Acrylate (MA) easily entering into the reaction of addition with a wide number of organic and inorganic substances, is the feedstock for the synthesis of organic low molecular weight substances.

Product Type: Acrylate Monomer

The introduction of Methyl Acrylate (MA) in polymers provides them with: 

  • Flexibility
  • Elasticity
  • Adhesion
  • Sickness

The areas of applications:

  • Methyl Acrylate (MA) as a comonomer is used to produce polyacrylonitrile fiber and organic glass. In a large amount of Methyl Acrylate, it is used as a comonomer in the synthesis of acrylic dispersions used in adhesives, binders, impregnating compositions in the leather, printing, varnish, paper, pulp and paper, and other industries.

It is applied in the production of: 

  • Acrylic dispersions
  • Paints & Varnishes
  • Textiles
  • Pulps & Papers
  • Leather
  • Printing
  • Adhesives
  • Binders
  • Inks, caulks and sealants
  • Many of the other industries…

To avoid polymerization, Methyl Acrylate (MA) should always be stored in air and not under inert gases. For the stabilizer to function effectively, oxygen is required. Methyl Acrylate (MA) must contain a stabilizer and be stored at a temperature not exceeding 35°C. Under such conditions, product stability is maintained for 1 year. In order to minimize the likelihood of excess storage, the storage procedure must strictly follow the first-come-first-go principle. When stored for more than 4 weeks, it is advisable to replenish the dissolved oxygen content. Methyl Acrylate (MA) is transported in containers, railway tanks, cylinders. Usually, methyl acrylate is stored in ground vertical cylindrical tanks (with a volume of 50–5000 m3) with a fill factor of 0.9–0.95 at atmospheric pressure and ambient temperature. The maximum storage capacity is 76 tons.
