2-(2-Vinyloxyethoxy)ethyl acrylate, also known as VEEA (vinyl ether ethyl acrylate), is an acrylic monomer that has several applications in the polymer industry. Here are some of its primary applications:

  • Coatings and paints: VEEA is used in the formulation of coatings and paints, particularly for industrial and automotive applications. It imparts excellent weathering resistance, flexibility, and adhesion properties to the coatings.
  • Adhesives and sealants: VEEA is used as a reactive diluent in the formulation of adhesives and sealants. It helps to improve the flexibility, impact resistance, and adhesion strength of the adhesive or sealant formulation.
  • Radiation-curable systems: VEEA is widely used in radiation-curable formulations, such as UV-curable coatings, inks, and adhesives. Its vinyl ether group makes it highly reactive towards cationic and free-radical polymerization, which is initiated by UV or electron beam radiation.
  • Plastic modification: VEEA can be used as a reactive modifier in various plastic systems, including polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polystyrene, and acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS). It improves the impact resistance, flexibility, and processing characteristics of these plastics.
  • Textile auxiliaries: VEEA finds applications in the textile industry as a component in textile auxiliaries, such as textile printing pastes, binders, and finishing agents.
  • Reactive diluent: VEEA is commonly used as a reactive diluent in various polymer systems, including polyurethanes, epoxy resins, and unsaturated polyester resins. It helps to reduce viscosity and improve the processing characteristics of these systems.
