A colorless crystalline or clear liquid of methacrylic acid with a pungent odor. Soluble in hot water, soluble in most organic solvents such as ethanol and ether. Easy to polymerize into water soluble polymers. It is flammable. In case of high heat and open flame, it is dangerous to burn. It can be decomposed by heat to produce toxic gas.
Used in organic synthesis and polymer preparation. Can be used as a raw material for synthetic rubber. Manufacturing thermosetting coatings, synthetic rubbers, fabric treatment agents, and the like. It is a monomer for making acrylate solvent type and emulsion type adhesive to improve the bonding strength and stability of the adhesive. Manufacturing coatings, insulating materials, adhesives and ion exchange resins. Used as an organic reagent, it is an important intermediate for organic chemical raw materials and polymers. Its most important derivative, methyl methacrylate-produced plexiglass, can be used in windows for aircraft and civil buildings, as well as buttons, solar filters and automotive lamp lenses; the coatings produced have superior suspension and rheology. And durable properties; the resulting binder can be used for bonding metals, leather, plastics and building materials; methacrylate polymer emulsions are used as fabric finishes and antistatic agents. In addition, methacrylic acid can also be used as a raw material for synthetic rubber.
