Emulsion polymerisation is widely used for ethylene derived unsaturated compounds used to produce aqueous polymer emulsions. The resulting polymers are polyacrylates or polyvinyl acetates combined with a large number of different co-monomers. The additional use of an emulsifier and a water-soluble initiator lead to polymer particles with a diameter between
0.05 and 5 µm.
Tylose® H grades with a low viscosity level are recommended.
In emulsion and suspension polymerisation processes, efficiency combined with a reliable high quality of the resulting product is indispensable. Tylose® acts as highly effective protective colloids in these processes and facilitates outstanding results.
