Butyl Acrylate (BA)

Butyl Acrylate (BA) 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 consisting of an acrylate 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.

Butyl Acrylate (BA) is a very useful feedstock for chemical syntheses because it readily undergoes addition reactions with a wide variety of organic and inorganic compounds. It is also used in adhesive and as a polymeric plasticizer for harder resins. nBA can be used to balance as such key properties as the hardness and softness, tackiness, low-temperature flexibility, strength and durability, and a lot of the others.
