Monofunctional Monomers

The challenges involved in formulating products can be overcome by the inclusion of specifically designed monomers. Monomers used in these applications can act as diluents or actively participate in forming a polymer matrix. To modify the polymer matrix, you must know what monomers can be added in what quantities to achieve the desired properties. The process of identifying the correct molecule with the correct purity and inhibitor level is difficult. Allow Esstech, Inc. to simplify the process.

2- Acetoacetoxyethyl Methacrylates

Acetoacetoxy ethyl methacrylate, also known as AAEMA, is a low viscosity, monofunctional methacrylate. The two ketone groups in its' backbone can chelate various cations allowing for adhesion between methacrylate resins or plastics and metals. The homopolymer of acetoacetoxyethyl methacrylate has a low Tg creating the potential for use as a toughening agent in polymer systems. CAS # 21282-97-3

X968 7246

2 - Hydroxyethyl Methacrylates High Purity

Hydroxyethyl methacrylate or HEMA is a high purity methacrylate monomer with many applications including: contact lenses, anaerobic adhesives, light-curing systems and high performance coatings.

X 968 7044

2 - Hydroxyethyl Methacrylates Direct Casting Grade

HEMA is a primary alcohol making it a good adhesion promoter in anaerobic adhesives. The purity level of this methacrylate monomer also makes it cost efficient.

X 968 7248

2 - Hydroxyethyl Methacrylates High Purity, High Stability

This HEMA has the adhesive qualities and multiple applications of other hydroxyethyl methacrylates along with additional stability.

Hydroxypropyl Methacrylates

Product Name: Hydroxypropyl Methacrylate, HPMA
CAS#: 27813-02-1
EINECS/ ELINCS: 248-666-3
INCI: Hydroxypropyl Methacrylate

HPMA or hydroxypropyl methacrylate contains a secondary alcohol group and is often considered to have less allergic reaction potential than other methacrylates. HPMA has been formulated in anaerobic adhesives and coatings. CAS # 27813-02-1

X737 Lauryl Acrylate

Lauryl Acrylate

Product Name: LA, n-Lauryl acrylate; 2-Propenoic acid, dodecyl ester; n-Dodecyl acrylate; Acrylic acid, dodecyl ester; Lauryl acrylate; 2-Propenoic acid, n-dodecyl ester; Ageflex FA-12; n-Lauryl acrylate
CAS#: 2156-97-0
EINECS/ ELINCS: 218-463-4
INCI: Lauryl Acrylate

Lauryl Acrylate is a low viscosity monofunctional monomer that can increase hydrophobicity of formulations due to its aliphatic tail.  It also can improve the flexibility and chemical resistance of various formulations.


Lauryl Methacrylate

Product Name: Dodecyl Methacrylate, LM, Lauryl Methacrylate, LMA
CAS#: 142-90-5
EINECS/ ELINCS: 205-570-6
INCI: Lauryl Methacrylate

Lauryl Methacrylate is a monofunctional methacrylate with a long chain hydrophobic pendant group. Lauryl Methacrylate can be used to improve flexibility, water resistance, adhesion and improved impact resistance to a large range of polymers. 

2-Methoxyethoxyethyl Methacrylates

2-Methoxyethoxyethyl Methacrylates

Product Name: Methoxyethoxyethyl methacrylate; Di(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate; 2-Propenoic acid, 2-methyl-, 2-(2-methoxyethoxy)ethyl ester; MEOEOEMA
CAS#: 45103-58-0
EINECS/ ELINCS: 256-190-2
INCI: Methoxydiglycol Methacrylate

MOEOEMA is a methacrylate with a variety of applications including: coatings, pressure senstive adhesives and nail enhancements.

Tetrahydrofurfuryl Methacrylates

Tetrahydrofurfuryl Methacrylates

Tetrahydrofurfuryl Methacrylate or THFMA is a polar methacrylate containing a five-membered heterocyclic group that works well as an adhesion promoter in anaerobic adhesive and other applications.

X 731 7046

2, 2, 2 - Trifluoroethyl Methacrylates

Trifluoroethyl methacrylate has a high purity and low refractive index.  It is often used in photocrosslinkable compositions and contact lens applications.


Ethoxyethyl Methacrylates

EOEMA is a high purity methacrylate monomer often used for, but not limited to contact lens applications.

X 724 0000

Isobornyl Methacrylates

The cyclic group of isobornyl methacrylate allows it to react in free radical polymerization while also acting as an excellent diluent.

X 727 0000

Poly (Propylene Glycol) Monomethacrylate

Polypropylene Glycol Monomethacrylate is a monofunctional monomer that is an ideal diluent because of it's low viscosity and low color.
