Polymer Supplier and Adhesive Manufacturer

The world of polymers is wide and varied, with many moving parts. There are hundreds of applications for our water based acrylic polymers in a variety of fields. A polymer, simply put, is a macromolecule comprised of many smaller molecules called monomers. These molecules react among themselves chemically to form long chain or three-dimensional networks. [...]

Acrylic Polymers in the Healthcare Industry

Acrylic polymer, derived from the monomer methyl methacrylate (MMA), was first developed more than 60 years ago. Since then, formulations have extended the material's performance range, resulting in varying levels of melt flow, impact resistance, colorability, gamma recovery, and other controlled characteristics. General-purpose acrylic grades contain a comonomer, added during the polymerization process, to facilitate [...]

What is an Acrylic Polymer Emulsion?

When working with water based acrylic polymers, you will surely come across acrylic polymer emulsions. To better understand what exactly an acrylic polymer emulsion is, we should first look at what emulsions are. What is an Emulsion? The word “emulsion” is derived from the Latin word meaning “to milk”, as milk is technically an emulsion [...]

Getting Acquainted with Acrylic Paints

In 1934 the first usable acrylic resin dispersion was created by the German chemical company BASF, patented by Rohm and Haas. By the 1940s the first synthetic paint was used, combining some of the properties of oil and watercolor paints to create one of the first water based acrylic polymers. Sometime between 1946 and 1949, [...]
