Safety Information
2-Hydroxyethyl acrylate Usage And Synthesis
  • Description2-Hydroxyethyl acrylate (HEA) is contained in Lowicryl 4KM and K11M resins. It caused contact dermatitis in workers embedding media for electron microscopy. It may also be contained in UV -cured nail gel used for photobonded sculptured nails.
  • Chemical Propertiesclear liquid
  • UsesAs a reactive monomer2-Hydroxyethyl acrylate is used as a crosslinking agent for resins, plastics and rubber modifiers. Further, it is used in the synthesis of amphilic block copolymers by nitroxide mediated living radical polymerization. In addition to this, it is used to prepare tuned poly(hydroxyethyl acrylate) by atom transfer radical polymerization.
  • Uses2-Hydroxyethyl acrylate is an acrylic monomer for use in UV inks, adhesives, lacquers, artificial nails, etc.
  • DefinitionA functional monomer for the manufacture of thermosetting acrylic resins.
  • General DescriptionA clear colorless liquid. Less dense than water. Vapors heavier than air. Corrosive to tissue. Flash point 120°F. May polymerize exothermically if heated or contaminated. If the polymerization takes place inside a container, the container may rupture violently. Used to make plastics.
  • Air & Water ReactionsFlammable. Slightly soluble in water.
  • Reactivity ProfileA functional monomer of thermosetting acrylic resins.
  • Health HazardInhalation causes irritation of nose and throat. Contact with liquid irritates eyes and skin.
  • Fire HazardBehavior in Fire: Containers may explode
