2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate Production Cost Analysis 2020

In appearance, 2-Ethylhexyl acrylate is a colourless liquid acrylate with a sweet odour. 2-Ethylhexyl acrylate polymerizes easily. The polymerization can be started by light, peroxides, heat, or contaminants. It has limited solubility in water and is a stable compound. It reacts aggressively when mixed with strong oxidants and can form explosive mixtures with air at temperatures above 82 °C (180 °F). 

2-Ethylhexyl acrylate, along with butyl acrylate, is the major base monomers for the manufacturing of acrylate adhesives.  It is used as a raw material in the production of adhesives, coatings, construction materials, acrylic rubber, and emulsions. It is also used to manufacture co-polymers like acrylic acid and its salts, maleates, amides, esters, methacrylates, acrylonitrile, vinyl chloride, vinyl acetate, vinylidene chloride, styrene, butadiene, and unsaturated polyesters. Due to its excellent water resistance, low-temperature flexibility, and sunlight resistance, it can be used in latex paint formulations.
