Acrylates copolymer

11.16.21

A general term for copolymers of two or more monomers consisting of acrylic acid, methacrylic acid or one of their simple esters.

Other copolymers of acrylic acid and other monomers (Ammonium Acrylates Copolymer , Ammonium VA/Acrylates Copolymer, Sodium Acrylates Copolymer, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Ethylene/Calcium Acrylate Copolymer, Ethylene/Magnesium Acrylate Copolymer, Ethylene/Sodium Acrylate Copolymer, Ethylene/Zinc Acrylate Copolymer, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid/VA Copolymer, Acrylates/VP Copolymer, Acrylates/VA Copolymer, Steareth-10 Allyl Ether/Acrylates Copolymer, Acrylates/Steareth-50 Acrylate Copolymer, Acrylates/Steareth-20 Methacrylate Copolymer, Acrylates/Ammonium Methacrylate Copolymer, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Styrene/Acrylates/Ammonium Methacrylate Copolymer, Ammonium Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Sodium Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Acrylates/Hydroxyesters Acrylates Copolymer, Methacryloyl Ethyl Betaine/Acrylates Copolymer, Lauryl Acrylate/VA Copolymer, VA/Butyl Maleate/Isobornyl Acrylate Copolymer, Ethylene/Methacrylate Copolymer, Vinyl Caprolactam/VP/Dimethylaminoethyl Methacrylate Copolymer, Sodium Acrylates/Acrolein Copolymer, VP/Dimethylaminoethylmethacrylate Copolymer, AMP-Acrylates Copolymer) are similar to Acrylates Copolymer in their function in cosmetics and personal care products. Polymers of acrylic acid and its salts (Polyacrylic Acid, Ammonium Polyacrylate, Potassium Aluminum Polyacrylate, Potassium Polyacrylate, Sodium Polyacrylate) also have similar properties and functions. In cosmetics and personal care products, Acrylates Copolymer and the related copolymers and polymers are used in a wide variety of product types.
