s-Lauryl Methacrylate (SLMA)

s-Lauryl Methacrylate (SLMA) 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. The product is a very useful starting material for chemical synthesis since it is easily subjected to addition reactions with a wide range of organic and inorganic compounds.

s-Lauryl Methacrylate (SLMA) is a water-insoluble, with low volatility monomer, is a very useful starting material for chemical synthesis since it easily undergoes addition reactions with a wide spectrum of organic and inorganic compounds and it 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 monomer can be used to impart the following properties to polymers:
