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.
