Application: 2-ethylhexyl acrylate is used in the production of homopolymers. It is also used in the production of co-polymers, for example acrylic acid and its salts, esters, amides, methacrylates, acrylonitrile, maleates, vinyl acetate, vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride, styrene, butadiene and unsaturated polyesters. 2-ethylhexyl acrylate is also used inpressure sensitive adhesives. When used in latex paint formulations acrylic polymers have good water resistance, low temperature flexibility and excellent weathering and sunlight resistance.

Storage and Transportation: 2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate should be stored in a closed container, away from direct sunlight, at ambient temperatures. An air space is required above the liquid in all containers; avoid storage under an oxygen-free atmosphere. Maintain in contact with an atmosphere containing between 5 and 21% of oxygen. Store in well ventilated area away from heat and sources of ignition such as flame, sparks and static electricity.
