Methyl methacrylate, whose chemical formula is C5H8O2 and chemical formula quantity is 100.12, is an organic compound, also known as MMA, or methyl ester for short. HS code for MMA is 2916140010. It is an important chemical raw material and the production of transparent plastic polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) monomer. It is flammable with a strong pungent smell and is moderately toxic. Long-term exposure should be avoided.
MMA is a colorless volatile liquid and has strong spicy, flammable. Solubility: soluble in ethanol, ethyl ether, acetone, and other organic solvents, slightly soluble in ethylene glycol and water. Flammable, stable, easy to polymerize in the presence of light, heat, ionizing radiation, and catalysts. It can explode when mixed with air. It is flammable when exposed to open fire, high temperature, and oxidant. Combustion stimulates smoke, chemical reaction with oxidants, acids, not long storage, to prevent polymerization.
