Butyl Acrylate is one of the most used acrylates, mainly in the manufacture of acrylic polymers and polyethylene. Butyl acrylate is highly reactive and polymerizes spontaneously under normal conditions. Butyl acrylate polymerization is catalyzed by heat, light, and peroxides and inhibited by monomethyl ether of hydroquinone or hydroquinone itself, in the presence of oxygen. That is the reason why Butyl acrylate is stored under air and in the presence of phenolic inhibitors, in stainless steel or aluminium tanks.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Butyl Acrylate 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).
