Butyl Acrylate

Production

Butyl acrylate is produced by reacting butanol with acrylic acid in the presence of an acid catalyst at an elevated temperature to produce butyl acrylate, water and other by-products.  The product mixture is purified by distillation.

Uses

Butyl acrylate is primarily used in the production of homo and co-polymers emulsion for use in water based architectural and industrial paints.  Polymers with butyl acrylate can also be used in manufacturing cleaning products, leathers industries, antioxidant agents, plastics, enamels, inks, adhesives, sealants, textiles, caulks and paper finishes.  The acrylate functionality allows it to be used as a chemical intermediary.
