Evonik introduced VISIOMER® HEMA-P 100 to the market, a phosphate methacrylate monomer that is nonmigratory, and its effects are long-lasting. Incorporated by polymerization, HEMA-P provides transparent flame retardancy, improves adhesion, and reduces corrosion. It is an effective adhesion promoter and anti-corrosive agent. VISIOMER HEMA-P can improve dispersibility and act as a complexing agent.
VISIOMER HEMA-P is versatile and may be used as a monomer for emulsion and solution polymers, vinyl ester and unsaturated polyester composites, acrylic adhesives, acrylic water proofing resins and cast PMMA. Applications include coatings for wood, textiles and paper, direct-to-metal (DTM) coatings, structural adhesives, waterproofing roofs and parking decks and architectural cast PMMA.
Unlike traditional additives, VISIOMER HEMA-P provides flame retardancy without compromising transparency or mechanical properties.
