New VISIOMER® TMCHMA monomer from Evonik
VISIOMER® TMCHMA is characterized by good adhesion to a wide variety of substrates and has a very high glass-transition temperature, giving adhesives a great amount of mechanical strength. Compared to other specialty monomers, another compelling advantage of VISIOMER® TMCHMA is its user-friendly labeling requirements. It also provides formulations with a high E- modulus and good shear strength.
Having good solubility, low vapor pressure and a reactive methacrylate group make VISIOMER® TMCHMA an ideal reactive diluent for high-solid and ultra-high-solid systems. Compared to VISIOMER® IBOMA, an already well-established high-solids monomer, incorporating Evonik’s VISIOMER® TMCHMA into resins achieves the same level of performance in all relevant film properties such as (pendulum) hardness, gloss, flexibility and chemical resistance.
3D printing applications
VISIOMER® TMCHMA’s high glass-transition temperature and dissolving power make it extremely well-suited to use as a reactive diluent in 3D printing resins, e.g. for SLA or DLP printers. In addition, being low-odor in nature and having low vapor pressure are of further benefit.
