Butyl Acrylate falls under the category of unsaturated hydrocarbons. Butyl Acrylate is available in clear colorless liquid and having a characteristic fruity odor, colorless and hygroscopic crystalline solid. Furthermore the butyl acrylate is soluble in organic solvents but shows limited solubility in water, also exhibit less density than water. Butyl Acrylate can readily polymerized and further exhibits wide range of properties depending upon the reaction condition and monomer selection. Butyl acrylate is manufactured and formulated by different process and reaction such as carbon monoxide, nickel carbonyl, acetylene and butyl alcohol reacts together to make butyl acrylate. Commercially butyl acrylate is available in different types and formulation and manufactures tailor-made the formulation according to the end user needs. Butyl acrylate found adoption on large scale in different application such as formulation of adhesives & sealants, paint & coatings, plastic processing, textile and also used in water treatment application. Furthermore, butyl acrylate is commercially used for the formulation and synthesis of co polymers and homopolymers such as acrylic acid and its esters, salts, amides and unsaturated polyesters. The different concentration of the monomer during the formulations of butyl acrylate based acrylic polymers enables the excellent properties such as low temperature flexibility, superior sunlight and weathering resistance & better water resistance. These properties makes the solution as a material of choice in paint & coating formulation. Butyl acrylate also used in cleaning products, paper finishes and antioxidant agents. The double bond present in the compound enables quick reactivity and also allows this product to be adopted as a chemical intermediary.
