Kowa’s line of specialty monomers is available to add a functional phosphate group to the acrylic backbone found in many emulsion polymer systems. Such functionality can impart adhesion promotion to various substrates, corrosion resistance, and improved film strength. Besides polymers systems, 2-HEMA-Phosphate can be used in pigment systems to promote adhesion. Also, commonly known as ethylene glycol methacrylate phosphate.
Advantages include better adhesion to metal substrates and other difficult substrates, improved corrosion resistance, and less surface preparation.
