What is the Tg of acrylic?

What is the Tg of acrylic?

Product Properties The glass transition temperature for ACRYLITE® premium acrylic sheet ranges between 90-105°C (194-221°F). The glass transition temperature for ACRYLITE® cast acrylic sheet ranges between 100-115°C (212-239°F).

What is the monomer of acrylate?

Acrylate monomers include ethyl acrylate, ethylene-methyl acrylate, methyl methacrylate, 2-chloroethyl vinyl ether, 2-hydroxyethyl acrylate, hydroxyethyl methacrylate, butyl acrylate, trimethylolpropane triacrylate (TMPTA).

What is acrylic ester monomer?

Acrylate monomers are usually esters which contain vinyl groups, that is, two carbon atoms double-bonded to each other, directly attached to the carbonyl carbon of the ester group. Some polymers (especially copolymers) contain the free acid, acrylic acid as shown below.

Is ethyl acrylate a monomer?

As a reactive monomer, ethyl acrylate is used in homopolymers and copolymers with e.g. ethene, acrylic acid and its salts, amides and esters, methacrylates, acrylonitrile, maleic esters, vinyl acetate, vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride, styrene, butadiene and unsaturated polyesters.

What is the monomer and polymer of acrylic?

Acrylic polymers are obtained from derivatives of acrylic and methacrylic acids; the group includes also their copolymers with various vinylic and allylic monomers. Monomers commonly used in the production of these polymers are acrylonitrile, acrylic and methacrylic acids, and their amide and alkyl ester derivatives.

Are acrylates polymers?

An acrylate polymer (also known as acrylic or polyacrylate) is any of a group of polymers prepared from acrylate monomers. These plastics are noted for their transparency, resistance to breakage, and elasticity.

Is ethyl acrylate a polymer?

Acrylic polymers include the acrylates such as ethyl acrylate and butyl acrylate and the methacrylates, such as methyl methacrylate and butyl methacrylate.
