- Largest, most cost competitive MMA facility in the world
- Developing pMMA recycle technology, major CE focus by MMA team
- Research in Europe on bio-based MMA technology
Industries we support:
Colacryl™ PMMA Monomers Polymethyl Methacrylate
Colacryl denture base polymers have been designed to offer excellent handling properties and working time without compromising strength and durability. With precisely controlled particle size, our PMMA-based acrylic resins offer superior impact resistance, low residual monomer, outstanding aesthetics and no porosity.
HMA Monomers Higher Methacrylates
A range of Higher Methacrylates, including Isobutyl Methacrylate (iBMA), Ethyl Methacrylate (EMA) and 2-Ethyl Hexyl Methacrylate (2-EHMA) are available.
MAA Monomers Methacrylic acid
MAA is formed via the acetone cyanohydrin (ACH) route to manufacturing MMA and is used in many applications, which include the production of aluminum can coatings, automotive coatings, exterior food packaging, cement modifiers, NBR latex for disposable synthetic rubber gloves and in vinyl ester resins.
MMA Monomers Methyl Methacrylate
MMA is the essential building block for acrylic-based products. It polymerizes easily to form resins and polymers with excellent performance characteristics. MMA is one of the key raw materials for acrylic based interior paint giving superior characteristics over alternative materials.
nBMA Monomers n-Butyl Methacrylate
nBMA is formed from the transesterification of MMA and is used in exterior decorative paints, automotive, wood finishes, specialty coatings and textiles where it provides durability, UV and moisture resistance as well as improved solvent solubility to the resin.
