acrylic resin

any of a group of polymers or copolymers of acrylic acid, its esters, or amides, used as synthetic rubbers, textiles, paints, adhesives, and as plastics such as Perspex

acrylic resin

[ə′kril·ik ′rez·ən]
(organic chemistry)
A thermoplastic synthetic organic polymer made by the polymerization of acrylic derivatives such as acrylic acid, methacrylic acid, ethyl acrylate, and methyl acrylate; used for adhesives, protective coatings, and finishes.

acrylic resin, acrylate resin

One of a group of thermoplastic resins made from esters of acrylic acid; exceptionally tough, stable, resistant to chemicals, and transparent; used as a binder, in sheet form, as an air-curing adhesive, and as the main ingredient in some caulks and sealants.

Different methods such as gas chromatography, infrared spectrometry and chemical detection have been described to evaluate the levels of residual MMA monomer.2-4 HPLC is popular in analytical chemistry as it is a nondestructive method that enables simultaneous analysis of various substances and provides correct estimates of the degree of residual monomer in acrylic resins. 12 As far as the scientific data on the amount of unreacted residual monomer released from denture based polymers is concerned, there is limited date available on leaching of residual monomer after one hour time interval.
