    Acrylic Fiber Applications

    Setting the Pattern for Performance

    AMPS monomer imparts a number of enhanced performance characteristics to acrylic, modified-acrylic, polypropylene and polyvinylidine fluoride fibers:

  • Improved dye receptivity (derived from pendant sulfonate groups)
  • Richer color
  • Enhanced moisture absorbency
  • Increased process cleanliness and efficiency
  • Improved tensile strength
  • Improved static resistance

    As an added benefit, the incorporation of AMPS monomer in one side of a bicomponent acrylic fiber produces a product with a natural crimp.

    Copolymers of AMPS monomer also can be padded onto cotton or starch to increase water absorbency, after being coprecipitated from viscose solutions.

    Coating and Adhesive Applications

    Adhering to Basics

    AMPS monomer is field-proven to achieve exceptional latex stability in high- performance latex coatings. When used to prepare latex paint, the surfactant becomes an integral part of the paint film, resisting leaching. This also is true for latexes used in laminating, such as pressure-sensitive adhesives.

    The AMPS monomers dispersions of solids in aqueous media are colloidally stable, improving the preparation of high solids emulsions. Low molecular weight copolymers of AMPS monomer are especially effective dispersants for highly polar materials. These copolymers also can improve the preparation of high solids dispersions.

    Cosmetic Applications

    Pure Performance

    A high molecular weight AMPS homopolymer is a very efficient skin lubricant for hand lotions, body creams, soaps, shower gels, suntan lotions, hair conditioners, skin conditioners, after shave lotions, lip balms, cold creams, bubble baths, cleansing lotions, perfumes and controlled scent delivery.

    New and emerging applications include:

  • Anti-wrinkle Patches
  • Blackhead Removal
  • Facial Cleansers
  • Moisturizers

    Hydrogel Applications

    Medical Hydrogel

    The lubricity and anti-coagulant characteristics of AMPS monomer are also useful in a number of hydrogel applications, particularly in coatings for medical devices that come into contact with tissue, blood or other biofluids.

    The characteristic high water absorbing capacity and electrical conductivity of polymers containing AMPS monomer make them ideally suited for medical hydrogels. They improve electrical conductivity, adhesion, absorption and oxidative stability for such applications as defibrillator pads, EKG electrodes, and similar medical equipment. AMPS monomer-containing polymers are also well-suited for unique applications such as drug delivery, transdermal patches and a variety of wound care applications.

    Oil Field Application

    Core Technology

    Homopolymers and copolymers of AMPS monomer are used in many oil field applications where hostile environments demand high-performance products. In addition to its exceptional thermal and hydrolytic stability, characteristics, such as its hydrophilic nature, a tendency to increase viscosity and its divalent cation stability, help make AMPS monomer an ideal solution for many oil field operations.

  • In drilling oerations where conditions of high salinity, high temperature and high pressure are present, AMPS copolymers are used successfully to inhibit fluid loss.
  • In cementing operations within deep, high temperature wells, AMPS copolymers are used as nonretarding fluid loss control agents.
  • AMPS copolymers also are used in oil field environments as scale inhibitors, friction reducers and rheology control polymers, and in polymer flooding applications.

    Specialty Monomers Water Treatment

    Treatment as Solution

    The divalent cation stability of the AMPS monomers chemical structure results in polymers that are very effective in water treatment processes:

  • Low molecular weight copolymers and terpolymers are typically used to inhibit calcium, magnesium and silica scale in cooling towers, boilers, air washers and gas scrubbers. They also can be used as dispersants for silt and iron oxides and corrosion control.
  • High molecular weight copolymers are typically used to precipitate solids in the treatment of industrial and mining effluent.

    Water Treatment

    Carbosperse K-700 water treatment polymers are deposit control agents sold to water treatment service companies for use as formulation components for water treatment (e.g., cooling, boiler) programs.

  • Carbosperse K-700 polymers include solvent and water polymerized polyacrylates, polymethacrylates, acrylate copolymers, and acrylate terpolymers.
  • Carbosperse K-700 polymers are multi-functional anionic polyelectrolytes that disperse particulates (e.g., silt, clay, iron oxide, pigments), and inhibit scale formation (e.g., calcium carbonate, calcium sulfate, calcium oxalate, barium sulfate, calcium phosphate, calcium phosphonate) over a broad pH range, and sequester di- and trivalent cations (e.g., calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, chromium, zinc).
  • Used around the world, Carbosperse K-700 polymers have earned a reputation for high quality, consistency, stability, formulating flexibility, high total and active solids, and narrow molecular weight distributions
