Korea Lotte Methyl Methacrylate or methacrylic acid is a clear, colorless, volatile, flammable liquid with a pungent and almost unbearable odor, as well as insoluble in water and soluble in most organic solutions.The molecular formula of this substance is C5H8O2, its boiling temperature is 200 degrees and its melting temperature is 160 degrees (both in degrees Celsius).
It is the most important methacrylic acid ester and has a smooth, polished surface. Although it is one of the hardest polymers and has a high resistance to impact and weathering, it has the same transparency as glass.
How to produce Korea Lotte Methyl Methacrylate?
There are several ways to produce this substance, including methyl propionate, propion aldehyde, isotropic acid, methyl acetylene, isobutylene, methaacryl nitrile, and methacryline sterilization.
But the most important method is the one that is made using cyanohydrin. In this method, hydrogen cyanide first reacts with acetone to produce acetone cyanohydrin. It then reacts with sulfuric acid to form methacrylate sulfate. Eventually, the material reacts with alcohol and water to form a methyl methacrylate structure.
Properties and benefits of Lotte Methyl Methacrylate?
This material has excellent optical transparency, along with the desired surface hardness. Other features include inflexibility with good impact strength, excellent dimensional stability, reduced volume and low intra-template shrinkage, excellent resistance to various weather conditions, as well as High resistance to sunlight was noted
Application of Korea Lotte Methyl Methacrylate?
It is used in the construction, automotive, electrical and lighting industries, CD production, toys, automation, decoration, sculpture, as well as concrete impregnation, oil viscosity modification and the production of paper covers, leathers, textiles , Latex paints, etc
