Also Known As
2-Ethylhexyl Ester; 2-Ethylhexyl 2-Propenoate; 2-Propenoic Acid Octyl Ester; Octyl Acrylate
2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate is used in the production of homopolymers. It is also used in the production of co-polymers, for example acrylic acid and its salts, esters, amides, methacrylates, acrylonitrile, maleates, vinyl acetate, vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride, styrene, butadiene and unsaturated polyesters. 2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate is also used in pressure sensitive adhesives.
When used in latex paint formulations acrylic polymers have good water resistance, low temperature flexibility and excellent weathering and sunlight resistance.
