Transparent, adhesive PIN FR solution

Evonik’s new phosphorus monomer offers a safe fire safety solution (no leaching risk) for the popular material PMMA. Polymethyl methacrylate is a transparent, high-performance, thermoplastic widely used as a lightweight alternative to glass.  Evonik’s new phosphorus-methacrylate monomer can be used as co-monomer in the polymerization process of PMMA. Bonding to the acrylic polymer by polymerisation, it provides flame-retardancy without compromising the transparency or mechanical properties. The new monomer can also be used in other resin formulations, e.g. vinyl esters, polyesters or acrylic adhesives. It provides flame-retardancy, improves adhesion and reduces corrosion. Applications include PMMA-sheets in construction, acrylic waterproofing roof systems, metal coatings, and wood coatings. Improved performance enables less material use and lightweighting, contributing to design flexibility and sustainability.
