Dodecyl vinyl ether
Monomer for copolymers of n-Dodecyl vinyl ether are used as raw materials for coatings defoamers, waxes, lubricants, pigment additives, vinyl homo- and copolymers (cationic mechanism).
Reactive diluent for epoxy silanes and silicon acrylate-based release coatings.
Copolymers of n-Dodecyl vinyl ether are used as formulation additive in water and solvent borne coatings formulations.
n-Dodecyl vinyl ether (DDVE) improves hydrophobicity of polymers as well as surface active behavior.
Vinyl ethers form alternating copolymers via charge transfer-complex polymerization with electron-deficient monomers, such as vinyl chlorides, maleic anhydride or TFCE
n-Dodecyl vinyl ether improves the hydrophobicity of unsaturated polyester coatings.
