Methyl Methacrylate Production Cost Analysis 2021
Methyl methacrylate, better known as MMA, is an organic compound. This chemical compound appears as a colourless liquid. Methyl methacrylate (MMA) is a type of monomer and is also known as methacrylic acid and methyl ester. A fundamental building block for acrylic-based polymers, MMA has applications involving safety glazing, exterior paints, vinyl impact modifiers, adhesives, illuminated light displays, etc.
The primary application, consuming approximately 75% of the methyl methacrylate, is the production of polymethyl methacrylate acrylic plastics (PMMA). Its another application is in the cement that is used in total hip replacements and total knee replacements. It is used as a grout by orthopaedic surgeons. Methyl methacrylate also serves as a raw material to produce other methacrylates. These derivatives include ethyl methacrylate (EMA), butyl methacrylate (BMA), and 2-ethyl hexyl methacrylate.
