Hydroxyethyl Acrylate

Commodity Name:

HEA, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate

CAS Number:

818-61-1

Chemical Structure:

CH2=CHCOOCH2CH-OH

Product properties:

Appearance: clear, colorless   Physical form: liquid   Odor: ester-like, mild pungent   Density at 25℃: 1.106 g/cm3

Applications:

Hydroxyethyl Acrylate (HEA) is also a very useful feedstock for chemical syntheses because it readily undergoes addition reactions with a wide variety of organic and inorganic compounds.

Features & Benefits

Hydroxyethyl Acrylate (HEA) can be used to impart the following properties to polymers:

  • Chemical resistance
  • Crosslinking
  • Adhesion
  • Scratch resistance
  • Weatherability
  • Rheology modifier
  • Low VOC

Storage & Handling:

In order to prevent polymerization, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate (HEA) must always be stored under air, and never under inert gases. The presence of oxygen is required for the stabilizer to function effectively. It has to contain a stabilizer and the storage temperature must not exceed 35 °C. Under these conditions, the storage stability of one year can be expected upon delivery. In order to minimize the likelihood of over storage, the storage procedure should strictly follow the “first-in-first-out” principle. For extended storage periods over 4 weeks it is advisable to replenish the dissolved oxygen content.

Packaging:

200 kg drum, 1000 kg IBC TANK, or packed according to customer requirements.
