Glycidyl Methacrylate for Engineering Thermoplastics Functionality
Glycidyl Methacrylate (GMA) monomer contains both acrylic and epoxy groups, providing you with the design and performance versatility required for the most demanding coating and resin applications.
Acrylic and Vinyl Functionality
Allows copolymerization with a variety of other vinyl monomers in aqueous and nonaqueous systems.
Resulting polymers feature a unique combination of epoxy functionality with an acrylic backbone.
Wide co-monomer selection provides easy control of physical and chemical properties such as Tg and solution viscosity.
Epoxy Functionality
Enables crosslinking reactions with amines, carboxylic acids, anhydrides and hydroxyl-containing polymers. Proper accelerator/catalyst choice allows use of a wide range of cure temperatures and schedules.
Allows structural modification of the polymer backbone that can result in differentiated properties and higher performance.

Glycidyl Methacrylate for Engineering Thermoplastics Recommed Application:

High performance automotive coatings for automotive applications
Powder Coatings
Radiation-curable coatings
Waterborne coatings
Industrial and protective coatings
Appliance and hardware finishes
Electrical laminates
Multifunctional acrylates
Hydrogenated LER substitutes
Plastic modifiers (PVC, PET, engineering thermoplastics, rubber)
Handling and storage recommendations, packing
Handling and storage: Store at 4 deg. C.??
Glycidyl methacrylate is stable under recommended storage conditions. Elevated temperatures can cause hazardous polymerization. Polymerization can be catalyzed by the absence of air, the presence of free radical initiators and peroxides, acids, UV light, bases, or high temperature. 

Glycidyl methacrylate contains an inhibitor to minimize polymerization under recommended storage conditions. See Product Description or SDS. Maintain inhibitor concentration and dissolved oxygen level. Uninhibited monomer vapors can polymerize and plug relief devices. 

Avoid unintended contact with activated carbon or silica gel, which may cause polymerization. Avoid contact with cellulose- or clay-based absorbents, and with incompatible materials, such as:
. Oxidizing or reducing materials

. Strong acids

. Strong bases

. Metals (cast iron, mild steel, copper, brass) and metal oxides

Packing: IBC or 200kg steel drum
