CYLINK® MBA Monomer (N,N’-Methylene Bisacrylamide)

Technical DataSheet | Supplied by Cytec (Solvay Group)

N, N'-Methylene bisacrylamide. Acts as an acid scavenger. It is a bi-functional internal cross-linking monomer that is also capable of free radical polymerization. Forms extensive polymer networks. Copolymerizes with acrylics, styrene-acrylics, vinyl-acrylics, vinyl acetate, EVA, etc. via emulsion, solution, suspension or bulk polymerization techniques. Offers higher tensile strength, impact modification and super-absorbency. Reacts with alkyd resins and polyesters to form hard resins. Used in ion exchange resins, polyester resins, UV-resistant PVC and water absorbing composites for waterproof cables. Applications include super-absorbing sheets in sanitary products (disposable baby diapers, sanitary napkins and adult incontinence garments), linked microgel particles (adsorbents, filter and separation membranes, temperature-sensitive (anti-fogging and dew preventing) materials, blood purification (non-woven fabric absorbents), oil dehydrating sheets, battery separators and textiles. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
