Eastman™ AAEM is a methacrylic monomer used to formulate high-solids solution acrylic resins and acrylic emulsions for lower VOC emission industrial and architectural coatings. The ability of AAEM to react with amines and hydrazides makes it an ideal monomer for self-crosslinkable, room temperature cure acrylic emulsions. It also finds use in acetoacetylated polymers crosslinked through chelation with metal ions and for acetoacetylated polymers for producing colorfast fibers (azo-dye). AAEM readily polymerizes with other acrylic and methacrylic monomers.
