Methyl methacrylate

C5H8O2: methylmethacrylate, methacrylic acid methyl ester

Supplier of methyl methacrylate

Methyl methacrylate (MMA) is a methyl ester of methacrylic acid, appears as a clear colorless oily liquid with an aromatic smell, flammable, slightly soluble in water and floats on water. Methyl methacrylate may polymerize exothermically if heated or contaminated with strong acid or base.


If the polymerization takes place inside a container, the container may rupture violently, therefore Inhibitors, such as: Topanol A, MEHQ, BHT or HQ, are added to keep Methyl Methacrylate from initiating polymerization.


Methyl methacrylate is used in manufacturing of methacrylate Resins and Plastics (e.g., Plexiglas). The principal uses of Methyl methacrylate are: cast acrylic sheets of different grades (advertising signs and displays, lighting fixtures, glazing and skylights, building panels and sidings, and plumbing and bathroom fixtures), molding/extrusion powder, and coatings (latex paints, lacquer, and enamel resins). Methyl methacrylate also can be used as a water-repellent on concrete surfaces.
