uses:

MMA is a polymethyl methacrylate (Plexiglas) monomer that is also copolymerized with other vinyl monomers to give different properties. It is used to make plexiglass, coatings, lubricant additives, plastics, adhesives. , resin, wood sizing agent, motor coil penetrant, ion exchange resin, paper polishing agent, textile auxiliaries, leather treatment agent, printing and dyeing auxiliaries, and insulating and pouring materials, etc.

Handling and storage:

Precautions for safe handling
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhalation of vapour or mist.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic
charge.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are
opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage.
