  May 27, 2021

Attributes and Applications

2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate is an important hydrophobic acrylate monomer that readily copolymerizes with a wide variety of acrylic and vinyl monomers to tailor specific high molecular weight copolymer properties for diverse range of applications.2-EHA acts as intermediate in production of paints & surface and water based coatings, textiles, adhesives, coatings, printing ink binders, sealants, plastics, elastomersleather finishing, and paper.

Current Europe Situation

The supplies of 2-EHA were tight in the first quarter of 2021, due to several plant turnarounds and reduced production rates in the Northwest Europe. US supplies to EU declined due to bad weather-related disruptions. However, demand witnessed an uptrend in the 2nd Quarter, due to better off take from export segment and global supply shortage.

Inhibitor and Handling

Acrylate monomers can self-polymerize if not properly inhibited, stored, and handled. For storage and transportation, 2-EHA is supplied with a polymerization inhibitor, usually MEHQ.Recommended storage temperature is 35 °C (95 °F) to prevent consumption of inhibitor.

 

Direct contact 2-EHA can cause irritation of the eyes, skin, nose and throat. Use appropriate safety and personal protective equipment as 2-EHA is a flammable monomer.Please go through the EH&S information safe product handling procedures in the product MSDS.
