Vinyl methyl oxazolidinone (VMOX)

Vinyl methyl oxazolidinone is a colorless, liquid vinyl monomer. It offers an easy handling, excellent application properties and favorable toxicological profile.

Adhesives

VMOX is used as a reactive diluent in UV cured adhesives. VMOX is characterized by a high copolymerization reactivity with acrylates. The monomer contributes excellent adhesion properties on all common substrates, even at low dosages.

Coatings

As a reactive diluent in UV cured coatings, VMOX is characterized by a high copolymerization reactivity with acrylates. The monomer contributes excellent adhesion properties on all common substrates, even at low dosages. The high Tg can enhance the toughness and resistance properties of a cured film.

Inks

VMOX finds application as a reactive diluent in UV curing inks, for example, for digital UV printing as well as 3D printing. In addition to the low tox profile, VMOX improves adhesion on low energy surfaces, and 3D printing applications benefit from improved mechanical properties.
