Copolymer resin is a synthetic resin produced by the joint polymerization of two or more monomers or polymers. In other words, copolymer resin is typically an emulsion resin based on vinyl acetate monomers, butyl acrylate and vinyl ester acetic acid.
copolymer resin in industries such as PVC paints, printing inks, textile coatings, flexible coatings and seals, anti-cracking coatings, basic watercolors, silicone and silicate paints, tile adhesives, building mortars , Moisture insulation, interior paint, exterior paint, etc. are used.
What is an artificial resin?
Gradually, with the knowledge of polymerization and the advancement of this branch of science, resins were also artificially produced by polymerization, which was very economical and because it was produced under controlled conditions, it has better uniformity and better and predictable properties Terry was more natural. Artificial resin has replaced natural resin in the polymer, plastic and paint industries. Polyester resin, phenolic resin, vinyl ester resin, epoxy resin, etc. are some of the resins in the industry that are more important than other resins.
What is polymerization?
There are two ways to make polymers. The chain growth method involves activating a number of monomers and eventually forming a polymer, and the compression growth method in which all monomers will be activated, resulting in the production of larger pieces of polymer at the reaction site.
Both of these methods are performed under a chemical reaction called polymerization or polymerization, in which small and simple molecules, or in other words, single molecules, bond together to form a large molecule with a molecular mass several times that of the original molecule. .
What is a monomer?
Monomer is derived from the Greek words mono meaning “one” and meros meaning “part”. Monomers are actually small molecules that can be deposited, creating a partnership between subunits with the basic structure of giant molecules called polymers.
