Acrylic Resins and Binders

Acrylic resins and binders are the common family of binder resins providing either thermoplastic or thermosetting properties. Acrylics are typically based on acrylic acids, methacrylic acids, acrylic monomers, or other derivative monomers that impart unique properties to specific types of ‘acrylics'. Acrylic emulsions are commonly used as an ingredient in adhesives, coatings, elastomers, sealants, lacquers, and textile finishes. Acrylic emulsions can be easily modified with additives and fillers to provide unique properties to the surface or substrate they are coating. For instance, when an acrylic emulsion is combined with clay, it can improve the glossing of paper.
