Formulating high quality products depend on the characteristics of your raw materials like color, acid, inhibitor, viscosity and refractive index. Consistent low color positively contributes to the appearance of the final product. The low acid value helps to stabilize the product and ensures an extended shelf life. Subsequently, the low residual acid content also allows for lower levels of inhibitor without compromising stability. Consistent viscosity delivers the desired physical characteristics while achieving the required refractive index that matches your final product. Esstech, Inc. is a reliable source that can produce materials with such strict specifications.
(4) Triethylene glycol dimethacrylate is a difunctional monomer that has been the foundation of many long-standing dental formulations. It has ideal water absorptivity and stability properties. TEGDMA is available with a variety of inhibitor packages.
The addition of an ethylene oxide unit to this product increases its reactivity and water absorptivity. It can be used as a primary constituent in anaerobic adhesives. Tetraethyleneglycol dimethacrylate is also sometimes referred to as TEGDMA.
(2) 1, 12 - Dodecanediol dimethacrylate has a hydrophobic backbone that increases its molecular mobility. DDDMA is commonly used in biomaterials and dental applications as well as coatings, composites and sealants. Dodecanediol dimethacrylate provides fast cure, flexibility and improved surface characteristeic to your polymer matrix.
(3) Trimethylolpropane trimethacrylate or TMPTMA is a unique trifunctional monomer because of its low volatility and its fast cure response. It is also chemical and wear resistant making it ideal for various coatings anaerobic adhesive and composite applications.
(4) Ethyleneglycol dimethacrylate, EGDMA acts as a cross-linking agent between polymer chains. Also known as ethylene dimethacrylate or monoethylene glycol dimethacrylate, this difunctional monomer has similar reactivity to methyl methacrylate and low water absorptivity.
1, 3 - Glycerol dimethacrylate or GDMA is commonly used in adhesive and sealant formulations.
