General Information

Frequently Asked Questions

Q:What is 2-hydroxyethyl acrylate

A: hydroxyethyl acrylate is an organic compound with the molecular formula C5H8O3. the Colorless liquid. Soluble in general organic solvents, miscible with water Hydroxyethyl acrylate is a kind of hydroxyalkyl acrylate, hydroxyalkyl acrylate includes hydroxyethyl methacrylate, hydroxypropyl methacrylate, hydroxyethyl acrylate, acrylic acid Hydroxypropyl ester four. Porous hydrogels can be prepared by copolymerization of 2-hydroxyethyl acrylate with crosslinking agents. 2-Hydroxyethyl acrylate can be used to synthesize amphiphilic block copolymers by nitroxide-mediated living radical polymerization. At the same time, it can also be used to prepare poly(hydroxyethyl)acrylate by atom transfer radical polymerization base ester.

Q:What is 2-hydroxyethyl acrylate used for?
A: This product can be copolymerized with many monomers such as acrylic acid and its esters, acrolein, acrylonitrile, acrylamide, methacrylonitrile, vinyl chloride, styrene, etc. Solvent resistance, wrinkle resistance and water resistance; also used in the manufacture of thermosetting coatings with excellent performance, synthetic rubber, used as lubricating oil additives, etc. Copolymers can be used as fiber treatment agents, thermosetting coatings, adhesives with high bond strength, heat-resistant and oil-resistant rubber (such as acrylic copolymer rubber), paper processing agents, lubricant additives, and acrylamide The copolymer can be used as a thickener, the copolymer with vinyl ether can be used as a substitute for floor wax, and the copolymer with divinylbenzene can be used as an ion exchange resin, etc. In terms of adhesives, it can be copolymerized with vinyl monomers to improve its bonding strength. In terms of paper processing, it is used to make acrylic emulsion for coating, which can improve its water resistance and strength. It can also be used to manufacture thermosetting acrylic coatings, light-curing acrylic coatings, photosensitive coatings, adhesives, textile treatment agents, paper processing, and water quality stabilization. agents and polymer materials, etc. It has the characteristics of less usage, but can significantly improve the performance of the product.

Q: What should be paid attention to during the transportation of hydroxyethyl acrylate?
1. Avoid sunlight, and cover with heat-insulating material when storing in the open air;
2. Moisture can promote the polymerization reaction, so water should be avoided;
3. Storage period: the second half year at room temperature;
4. Avoid impact during transportation, and rinse with clean water in case of leakage;
5. Corrosion to the skin and mucous membranes, rinse with clean water in time after touching
