About Methacrylic Acid. Methacrylic Acid (a.k.a. MAA) is an organic compound in the carboxylic acid class. It is a viscous, colorless liquid, with an acrid unpleasant odor. MAA can be found naturally in chamomile oil, however, its industrial production began in the 1930s and currently is mainly used as a precursor to its esters, most notably methyl methacrylate (MMA) and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA).
Chemical Formula. C4H6O2
Commercial Grades. Pure/glacial grade (min. 99% purity); crude monomer grade (min. 85% purity); 40% aqueous solution
Uses. Methacrylic Acid is used mainly as: monomer to large volume resins, polymers and in other organic synthesis; component of engineering adhesives; thickener for hair care products; binder of paper and textile; pharmaceutical ophthalmic; and nail primer.
