Nov 2020. Acrylic acid and esters are versatile monomers used as building blocks for thousands of polymer formulations. They are flammable, reactive, volatile liquids based on an alpha-, beta-unsaturated carboxyl structure. Incorporation of varying percentages of acrylate monomers permits the production of many formulations for latex and solution copolymers, copolymer plastics and cross-linkable polymer systems. Their performance characteristics—which impart varying degrees of tackiness, durability, hardness, and glass transition temperatures—promote consumption in many end-use applications. Major markets for the esters include surface coatings, textiles, adhesives, and plastics. Polyacrylic acid or copolymers find applications in superabsorbents, detergents, dispersants, flocculants, and thickeners. Superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) are used primarily in disposable diapers.
