n-Butyl Methacrylate


We are a major distributor of n-Butyl Methacrylate for Eastern and Western Europe, but with excellent opportunities for export outside of Europe.

Description and uses

Clear, colorless liquid with a h2, fruity odor. Butyl Methacrylate is used in the production of homopolymers and co-polymers for use in water-based industrial and architectural paints, enamels, adhesives, caulks and sealants, and textile finishes. The reactivity of the molecule's double bond also yields applications as a chemical intermediate.
