Acrylic Acid (also known as Prop-2-enoic Acid and Acroleic Acid) is a moderately strong carboxylic acid primarily used as an intermediate in the production of acrylates esters. These acrylate esters are then mainly used to manufacture adhesives, plastics additives, coatings, paints and textiles. Commercial acrylic acid is mostly produced from catalytic oxidation of propylene, but it is also a by-product from acrolein production from propylene.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Acrylic Acid production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (2019/20).
