Some Detailed Information about the Acrylic Acid Uses?


Ⅰ. The main uses of acrylic acid

It is used in the fields of acrylates, water reducers, water treatment agents, etc.


Ⅱ. Introduction of the acrylic acid

Acrylic acid, also known as poly propenoic acid, is an important organic synthesis raw material and synthetic resin monomer, and it is a vinyl monomer with a very fast polymerization rate. It is the simplest unsaturated carboxylic acid, consisting of a vinyl group and a carboxyl group. Pure acrylic acid is a colorless, clear liquid with a characteristic pungent odor. It is miscible with water, alcohol, ether and chloroform, and is prepared from propylene obtained from the oil refinery. Most of the acrylic acid is used to make acrylic esters such as methyl acrylate, ethyl acrylate, butyl ester, and hydroxyethyl acrylate. Acrylic acid and acrylic acid esters can be homopolymerized and copolymerized, and their polymers are used in industrial sectors such as synthetic resins, synthetic fibers, super absorbent resins, building materials, and coatings. The professional standard for acrylic acid is TLV-TWA 6 mg/m³; TWA 30 mg/m³.


Ⅲ. More information about acrylic acid uses

1. The first acrylic acid use: Acrylic acid is an important organic chemical compound and synthetic resin monomer, and it is a vinyl monomer with a very fast polymerization rate. Most of the acrylic acid is used to make acrylic esters such as methyl acrylate, ethyl acrylate, butyl ester, and hydroxyethyl acrylate. Acrylic acid and acrylic acid esters can be homopolymerized and copolymerized, and can also be copolymerized with acrylonitrile, styrene, butadiene, vinyl chloride and maleic anhydride and other monomers. And their polymers are used in industrial sectors such as synthetic resins, synthetic fibers, super absorbent resins, building materials, and coatings. Acrylic acid is one of the important raw materials for water-soluble polymers, and it can be grafted and copolymerized with starch to make super absorbent;

2. The second acrylic acid use: It can be homopolymerized and copolymerized to produce high polymers, used in coatings, adhesives, solid resins, molding compounds, etc.

3. The third acrylic acid use is that it can be used in the preparation of acrylic acid resin, rubber synthesis, coating preparation, and pharmaceutical industry.

4. Adhesive

Copolymer latexes such as acrylic acid, methyl acrylate, ethyl acrylate, 2-ethylhexyl acrylate, etc. can be used as the adhesives for electrostatic flocking with good fastness and feel.

5. Polyacrylates

Acrylic acid can also be used to produce various polyacrylate products (such as ammonium salt, sodium salt, potassium salt, aluminum salt, nickel salt, etc.). It can be used as agglutinant, water quality treatment agent, dispersant, thickener, food preservation agent, acid and alkali resistant desiccant, softener and other polymer additives.
