Hydroxyethyl methacrylate is derived from the reaction of ethylene oxide and methacrylic acid. It is often referred to as HEMA. It is used in the plastics industry to produce acrylic resins containing active hydroxyl groups. It is a colorless, transparent, and easy-to-flow liquid. Soluble in common organic solvents. Miscible with water. Mainly used for modification of resins and coatings. Copolymerization with other acrylic monomers can produce acrylic resins with reactive hydroxyl groups on the side chains. It can be esterified and cross-linked to synthesize insoluble resins and improve adhesion. It can be used as fiber treatment agent; used in production Coatings, resins for automotive topcoats and primers, can also be applied to photopolymerizable resins, printing plates, inks, gels (contact lenses) and coatings for cans, transmission electron microscope (TEM) and optical microscope (LM) packages Embedding reagents, especially for hydrated samples of "sensitive antigen sites"; used in the plastics industry to manufacture acrylic resins containing active hydroxyl groups. The coating industry and epoxy resin, diisocyanate, melamine formaldehyde resin, etc. are used to prepare two-component coatings. The oil industry is used as an additive for washing lubricants.
