Packed in 200kg iron drum or plastic drum

1. UV diluent/Thinner (active monomers)
Directly as active monomer, react in the formula (such as plastic spraying, UV wood coatings, gusset plate paint, vacuum plating paint, paper varnish etc.), have a good dilution effect, and the adhesion is improved
2. Synthesise the raw material
As the (meth) hydroxyl acrylate has hydroxyl, so it could react with many functional groups to synthesise polymer materials:
synthesise thermosetting acrylic resin, and use amino resin to make baked coating;
Synthesise UV resin, such as amino acrylate, polyester acrylates and urethane acrylates.
Synthesise adhesive, fiber finishing agent (UV glue, acrylic adhesive, etc.)

3.Used for synthesis of medical polymer materials, thermosetting coatings and adhesives, etc

Storage and transportation:Storage temperature:15-25ºC. Avoid exposing in sunshine, covered with insulated materials when stored outdoor.Avoid entry of water for it can accelerate polymerization.
