2-Ethylhexyl acrylate Usage And Synthesis
  • Description2-Ethylliexyl aerylate was contained in a surgieal tape and caused allergic contact dermatitis in a patient.
  • Chemical Propertieslight yellow liquid
  • Chemical Properties2-Ethylhexyl acrylate is a combustible, colorless liquid with a pleasant odor
  • UsesMonomer for plastics, protective coatings, paper treatment, water-based paints.
  • UsesAs a plasticizing co-monomer for the production of resins used in adhesives, latex, paints, textile and leather finishes, and coatings for paper
  • Uses2-ethylhexyl acrylate is a monomer for plastics, protective coating, paper treatment, water-based paints, UV-curable coatings, and inks; in so me acrylicbased adhesive tapes.
  • General DescriptionA clear colorless liquid with a pleasant odor. Less dense than water and insoluble in water. Vapors heavier than air. Flash point 180°F. Used in making of paints and plastics.
  • Air & Water ReactionsInsoluble in water.
  • Reactivity Profile2-Ethylhexyl acrylate polymerizes readily in the presence of heat and light generating much heat; reacts with strong oxidants. REF [Handling Chemicals Safely, 1980. p. 235].
  • HazardQuestionable carcinogen.
  • Health HazardInhalation of concentrated vapor causes drowsiness and convulsions. Liquid causes irritation of eyes and may irritate skin on prolonged exposure. Ingestion produces same symptoms as inhalation.
  • Fire HazardBehavior in Fire: Heat can result in a severe polymerization with rapid release of energy. Sealed containers may rupture explosively if hot.
  • Potential ExposureA potential danger to those involved in the use of this monomer as a feedstock for chemical syntheses; in the manufacture of plastics; protective coatings, including water-based paints; in paper treatment; the production of emulsion polymers.
  • IncompatibilitiesUnless inhibited, sunlight, heat, contaminants, or peroxides can cause dangerous polymerization. Vapors are uninhibited and may polymerize, blocking vents. Violent reaction with strong oxidizers, with risk of fire and explosions. May form explosive mixture with air. Incompatible with strong acids; aliphatic amines; alkanolamines.
  • Waste DisposalSpray into incinerator with added flammable solvent.
