ButylMethAcrylate (n-BMA & i-BMA)

CAS: 97-88-1

N-Butyl Methacrylate (n-BMA)  is a clear, colorless liquid with a faint ester-like odor. Its molecular formula is  C8H14O2

N-BMA also demonstrates flexibility, durability, UV/weathering and moisture resistance in exterior decorative paints and automotive finishes.

In solvent based systems, it improves solubility of the copolymer resin.


Butyl Methacrylate Chemical Structure Composition.


nBMA is formed from the esterification of MMA


N-butyl methacrylate (n-BMA) is a versatile, plasticizing methacrylate monomer used in both homopolymer and copolymer compositions.

As a homopolymer, n-BMA is used in adhesives and as a polymeric plasticizer for harder resins.

As copolymer n-BMA applications are water-borne industrial and architectural paints, textiles, paper & leather coatings, wood coatings, adhesives, inks, caulks, and sealants.

n-BMA is a base material for coatings and adhesives (PSA), resins, solvent, coatings, oil additives, dental products, textile emulsions, leather and paper finishing, inks, copier toners, adhesives, exterior architectural and industrial paints, over-paint varnishes, automotive finishes and lacquers, wood coatings, floor polishes, paper and leather coatings, and textile binders.
