VeoVa™ 10 Monomer

 

 

Description

VeoVaTM 10 monomer is the vinyl ester of VersaticTM acid 10, a synthetic saturated monocarboxylic acid with a highly branched structure containing ten carbon atoms. Its structure may be represented as:

 

 

VeoVa structure

 

 

R1 and R2 are alkyl groups containing a total of 7 carbon atoms. VeoVa 10 monomer, a low viscosity liquid with a typical mild ester odor, is a very attractive monomer for the manufacture of polymers through reactions of the vinyl group. It imparts a combination of flexibility (medium to low Tg), hydrophobicity and very good chemical and UV resistance.

 

 

Applications

VeoVa 10 monomer is widely used as a modifying co-monomer in the manufacture of vinyl acetate based polymer latices. VeoVa 10 monomer is also used for the production of VeoVa 10/(meth)acrylic latices and solution polymers.

 

Examples of VeoVa 10 monomer based polymer applications are:

  1. Decorative emulsion paints, plasters and renders.
  2. Industrial paints and coatings such as anti-corrosion paints, wood coatings and varnishes and coatings for polyolefins.
  3. Latices and spray-dried redispersible powders for mortar admixtures.
  4. Latices for adhesives including Pressure Sensitive Adhesives, construction and wood adhesives.
  5. Reactive diluent for specific heat-cured unsaturated polyesters.

Test Methods

ASTM Standards are published by the American Society for Testing and Materials, 100 Barr Harbor Drive, west Conshohocken, PA 19428-2959, USA.

SMS and LPM methods mentioned are available from Hexion Inc. .

 

 

Transportation and Storage

Information on transport, storage, suitable materials for tank construction, etc, is available from Hexion, via local representative or distributor.

VeoVa 10 Monomer should be stored at ambient temperature (min 5 °C - max 50 °C) in conditions such that moisture is excluded, in the original containers kept tightly closed. Under these conditions the shelf life should be a three years  starting from the manufactured date.

 

 

Handling Precautions

For more detailed information on all aspects relating to Health, Safety and Handling, reference should be made to the Safety Data Sheet of VeoVa 10 monomer, which is available from your local Hexion representative or distributor.
