A group of polymers which could be referred to as plastics generally. They are noted for their transparency and resistance to breakage when compared to conventional window glass. Commonly called as acrylics or polyacrylates, acrylate polymers. A form of acrylate polymer that may be familiar to consumers is a clear break resistant sheeting sold in hardware stores under the trade name Plexiglas acrylic glass.
Some acrylate monomers (the components of the polymers) used to form acrylate polymers may be acrylic acid, butyl acrylate, 2-ethylhexyl acrylate, methyl acrylate, ethyl acrylate, acrylonitrile, methyl methacrylate, and TMPTA.
"Super glue" is a formulation of cyanoacrylate.
Polyacrylate is a polymer that is used in the production of disposable nappies due to its super absorbency relative to its mass.
