Isobornyl acrylate (IBOA) is a monofunctional reactive diluent that polymerizes when exposed to a source of free radicals, such as UV light. It is a key monomer for the manufacture of acrylic resins, and is best suited for use in solvent-based systems.
The bicyclic structure of IBOA gives rise to acrylate polymers with enhanced thermal stability, while its monofunctionality minimizes crosslinking in the resin. It is therefore recommended for paints and coatings that require some level of flexibility. It can also be used in urethane acrylates that require high elongation, or to improve ink and coating adhesions to polyolefins.
