AEROTEX NMA 48%, offered as a 48% aqueous solution, is a bifunctional monomer possessing both vinyl and hydroxymethyl groups. Thermoplastic polymers can be formed through the copolymerization of NMA with a variety of vinyl monomers via emulsion, solution, or suspension techniques. The resulting products, having pendant hydroxymethyl groups, are self-crosslinkable under moderate conditions. This mechanism permits the conversion of thermoplastic backbone polymers to thermoset materials at the point of use without the need for an external crosslinker. Conversely, the hydroxymethyl group can first be reacted with a substrate like cellulose and subsequently cross-linked by free radical polymerization.
