2-Hydroxyethyl Acrylate (2-HEA) is a raw material component used in the manufacture of polymers. It is an ester of acrylic acid. 2-Hydroxyethyl Acrylate (2-HEA) is a monofunctional methacrylate monomer having a branching hydrophobic moiety and the typical strong reactivity of methacrylates. 2-Hydroxyethyl Acrylate (2-HEA) is a monomer that can be used to make homopolymers and copolymers. (meth)acrylic acid and its salts, amides, and esters, as well as methacrylates, acrylonitrile, maleic esters, butadiene, and other monomers, can be used to make 2-Hydroxyethyl Acrylate (2-HEA) copolymers.
