BASF launches 2-propylheptyl acrylate

17-Feb-09
Chemical giant BASF has recently launched 2-propylheptyl acrylate (2-PHA), a new raw material and building block for functional polymers, on the market. This step indicates company's steady expansion of its specialty monomers portfolio. 2-PHA, an alkyl acrylate, is characterized by substantially longer alkyl chain compared with other monomers thereby, achieving significantly improved results for the most important features of pressure sensitive adhesives - for example adhesion and tack. In addition, with 2-PHA the glass temperature of the homopolymer is 10°C lower than with 2-ethylhexyl acrylate, an acrylate commonly used to manufacture adhesives. 2-PHA is based on the precursor 2-propylheptanol (2-PH) and forms a key component of the acry;ic acid value chain in BASF's Production Verbund.
