Isobornyl methacrylate (IBMA) is a bifunctional 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 IBMA gives rise to acrylate polymers with enhanced thermal stability and a high glass transition temperature. It is primarily used in industrial paints and coatings, particularly for metal, glass, and plastics. Small volumes are used as a reactive diluent for oligomers.
