Methyl Methacrylate (MMA)

Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) 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. MMA forms a homopolymer and copolymers with (meth)acrylic acid and its salts, amides, and esters, as well as with methacrylates, acrylonitrile, maleic acid esters, vinyl acetate, vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride, styrene, butadiene and other monomers.

Methyl Methacrylate (MMA), easily entering into the reaction of accession with a wide range of organic and inorganic substances, is used for the synthesis of organic low molecular weight substances.

The introduction of Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) in polymers provides them with: 

  • Hydrophobicity
  • Hardness
  • Adhesion
  • Weatherability

The areas of applications:

  • Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) is used in the manufacture of organic glass, coatings, lubricating oil additives, plastics, adhesives, wood wetting agents, electric coil soak, ion exchange resin, paper glazing agents, textile auxiliaries, leather treatment agents, dyeing auxiliaries and insulation filling materials.

It is applied in the production of: 

  • Acryl resins
  • Coating resins
  • Molding materials
  • Latex paints
  • Glues & Sealants
  • Emulsions
  • Modifiers
  • Impregnation agents

To avoid polymerization, Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) should always be stored in air and not under inert gases. For the effective functioning of the stabilizer, the presence of oxygen is necessary. MMA 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 storing Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) for more than 4 weeks, it is advisable to replenish the content of dissolved oxygen. Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) transportation can be carried out by rail, road, sea, river transport, in accordance with the rules for the transport of goods in force on this type of transport.

Safety

Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) is a flammable liquid. The flash point is 11 °C (bh). the auto-ignition temperature is 421 °C. The lower limit of flame spread is 2.1% vol. The upper limit of flame propagation is 12.5% ​​vol. MPC = 10 g/m3. Methyl methacrylate can have a depressing effect on the central nervous system, liver, and kidneys; cause allergic reactions of the eyes, skin, nose, throat; causes severe headache, nausea, dermatitis in workers in contact with this monomer. Extremely easily diffuses through the walls of plastic cans, vessels, polluting the air.
