Evonik is now supplying a phosphate methacrylate as a reactive flame retardant and anti-corrosion agent. Together with other monomers the HEMA-P (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate phosphate) monomer forms a polymer by radical polymerization, thus it is not subject to migration. As well as improving fire performance, the phosphate methacrylate acts as an adhesion promotor, anti-corrosion agent, improves emulsion stabilisation and reduces static charging. Containing 30% methyl methacrylate, it offers a low viscosity for easy processing and a very low colour index, suitable for optical applications. Other uses include plastics, polymer resins, adhesives, paints and coatings, fibres, composite resins and gel coats.
