Methylene malonates will drive the next generation of advanced coatings and adhesives

Whether you produce packaging, automobiles, wood products, medical devices or electronics, polymer coatings and adhesives play a crucial role in the performance, sustainability and cost of the goods you manufacture. Polymer coatings and adhesives based on our patented methylene malonate monomers promise to streamline your manufacturing operations and cut your costs—without affecting the performance characteristics you demand.


As polymer building blocks, methylene malonate monomers are nothing if not versatile. These monomers can yield entirely new polymer architectures, for coating and adhesives that offer a better balance of your key physical and mechanical properties. Or our malonates can be incorporated into coatings and adhesives similar to the ones you already use—but better. The possibilities include:

  • Increased strength and elongation
  • Enhanced thermal performance
  • Optical clarity and surface finish improvement


Malonate-based adhesives and coatings can polymerize anionically at ambient temperatures—and do so without slowing your manufacturing lines. There’s no need for UV light, high loadings of solvents, external heat sources or any other curing aid that increases your energy usage or reduces your operational sustainability.


Performance and sustainability gains are great, but costs always matter in your business. Thanks to the unique ambient-temperature cure mechanism, methylene malonate-based coatings and adhesives can help you take cost out of your manufacturing processes by reducing energy and capital.
