2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate Price Trend

The ester of acrylic acid with 2-ethyl hexanol is 2-ethylhexyl acrylate. The average quote price of acrylic acid in East China as of January 26th was 13,833.33 RMB/MT, up 4.80% from January 1st and down 27.45% in three months. In January, the acrylic market increased. The price of the raw material propylene climbed sharply in the first ten days, cost support was tightened, certain installations were shut down, market spot supply fell, downstream replenishment was strong, and export volume improved, all of which supported the price of acrylic acid to grow. The industry's total start-up burden was minimal. The downstream was busily stocking up ahead of the festival, and the price of acrylic acid progressively climbed owing to export orders. The cost support diminished in late January as the price of the raw ingredient propylene declined, but the high market was sustained by limited supply.

About 2-Ethylhexyl acrylate:

The clear liquid 2-ethylhexyl acrylate has outstanding flexibility and diluting qualities. One of the ingredients of acrylic polymeric latex is 2-ethylhexyl acrylate. Pressure-sensitive adhesives can be made by polymerizing it with methyl methacrylate via free-radical solution polymerization. 2-ethylhexyl acrylate is a popular feedstock for chemical synthesis because it easily performs addition reactions with a wide spectrum of organic and inorganic chemicals.
