Acrylic Ester Market by Type (Methyl Acrylate, Ethyl Acrylate
, Butyl Acrylate, 2-EH Acrylate) by Application (Surface Coatings, Adhesives & Sealants, Plastic additives, Detergents, Textiles) - Trends & Forecasts to 2019
Preparation of 2-(2-Bromoisobutyryloxy) Ethyl Acrylate
Latex polymers based upon ethyl acrylate
and methacrylic acid are well-known thickeners.
Dow: April 1-$110/MT increase in Middle East/Afica, Latine America and Pacific and 85 [euro]/MT in Europe for glacial acrylic acid, butyl acrylate, ethyl acrylate
, methyl acrylate and 2ethylhexyl acrylate; 50 [euro]-(70 [euro]/MT increase for glycol ethers in Europe.
Products: Methyl acrylate, ethyl acrylate
, and butyl acrylate
As consequence, bark extracts from poplar, pine and acacia trees, in amount of 8% (based on the total monomer content) were used in the copolymerization of the acrylic comonomers: ethyl acrylate
, butyl acrylate, acylonitrile, acrylic acid.
Dow increased prices for glacial acrylic acid, butyl acrylate, ethyl acrylate
, methyl acrylate and 2-ethylhexyl acrylate.
The particles were made as follows: Styrene monomer (Acros Organics) was filtered through aluminum oxide, butyl acrylate; and ethyl acrylate
monomers (Acros Organics) were vacuum-distilled to remove inhibitors.
The chemical was identified as ethyl acrylate
-a flammable liquid which can cause breathing problems.
As a result, Dow acquired the acrylates production assets at the Celanese Clear Lake, TX facility and Celanese's acrylates product line, including intellectual property, inventory and technology for crude acrylic acid, glacial acrylic acid, ethyl acrylate
, butyl acrylate, methyl acrylate and 2-ethylhexyl acrylate.
Dow will acquire Celanese's acrylics business product line, including intellectual property, inventory and technology for crude acrylic acid, glacial acrylic acid, ethyl acrylate
, butyl acrylate, methyl acrylate and 2-ethylhexyl acrylate, as well as acrylics production assets at the Celanese Clear Lake, TX, facility.
The new Amplify functional polymers family comprises ethylene ethyl acrylate
(EEA) and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymers, as well as maleic anhydride (MAH)-grafted polymers, all originally brought on board through Dow's acquisition of Union Carbide.
