Butyl Acrylate (BAM)

Butyl Acrylate (BAM)

Butyl Acrylate (BAM) is an ester of Acrylic acid and is used as a raw material component in the synthesis of polymers. Butyl Acrylate (BAM) is a monofunctional monomer consisting of an acrylate group with a characteristic high reactivity and a cyclic hydrophobic group. Copolymers of Butyl Acrylate (BAM) can be prepared with (met) acrylic acid and its salts, amides, and esters, and with methacrylates, acrylonitrile, maleic acid esters, vinyl acetate, vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride, styrene, butadiene, unsaturated polyesters and drying oils, etc.

This chemical is a very useful feedstock for chemical syntheses because it readily undergoes addition reactions with a wide variety of organic and inorganic compounds.
