Butyl Acrylate Production Cost Reports

Reports Available in Subscriptions

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 (Q2 2019).

You can find below reports focused on Butyl Acrylate production processes available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Butyl Acrylate Production from Acrylic Acid and Butanol - Cost Analysis | Butyl Acrylate E11A

This report approaches the production of n-Butyl Acrylate from acrylic acid and n-butanol. The process examined is a typical direct esterification process. The economic analysis performed assumes a plant located in the USA.

Butyl Acrylate Production from Propylene and Butanol - Cost Analysis | Butyl Acrylate E21A

This study concerns the production of n-Butyl Acrylate, starting from propylene and n-butanol. Chemical grade propylene is oxidized to acrolein and then to acrylic acid, which is then fed to an esterification reaction, along with n-butanol to generate Butyl Acrylate. The economic analysis performed is based on a plant located in the United States.
