2-Hydroxy-Propyl Methacrylate (2-HPMA)

CAS: 27813-02-1

2-Hydroxypropyl Methacrylate is a clear, colorless liquid with a light unpleasant odor with molecular formula C7H12O3. It may float or sink in water.

2-HPMA contains small amounts of methacrylic acid and propylene oxide. It copolymerizes readily with a wide range of monomers. The hydroxyl groups improve adhesion to surfaces, incorporate cross-link sites, impart corrosion, fogging, and abrasion resistance, color, and volatility.

Production

2-Hydroxypropyl methacrylate monomer is manufactured by reacting methacrylic acid with propylene oxide.

Uses

2-HPMA is a monofunctional methacrylic monomer used in UV-curable inks/coatings, in the manufacture of thermosetting acrylic polyols, butadiene styrene rubber latex modifier, acrylic acid modified polyester coating, adhesives, printing inks, caprolactone monomers, coatings for automotive, water-soluble electroplate coating binder, textile treatment agent, fiber finishing agent, paper coating, appliances, sealants, Napp printing plates, photoprepolymer printing plates, detergent lubricating-oil additives, binders and metals applications.

Application such as artificial fingernail (acrylic nail) applications, dental composites adhesives, dental prosthetics, or for any application that would result in implantation or prolonged contact within the human body need a specific grade.
