4-Hydroxybutyl vinyl ether

4-Hydroxybutyl vinyl ether (HBVE) is a building block for macro monomers and monomer for vinyl copolymers as well as reactive diluent for UV coatings. HBVE is used in adhesives for labels, printing and flexible packaging


  • Ethoxylated HBVE can be applied in water/solvent based hydroxyfunctional Vinyl polymers, cross – linked with Poylisocyantes and Melamine resins for usage in concrete.

Cationic, charge transfer and free radical polymerization process can cure HBVE.
