acrylate resin

[′ak·rə‚lāt ′rez·ən]
(organic chemistry)
Acrylic acid or ester polymer with a ‒CH2‒CH(COOR)‒ structure; used in paints, sizings and finishes for paper and textiles, adhesives, and plastics. Also known as acrylate.

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.
