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:
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.
