Visiomer Terra from Evonik
Evonik Industries will be presenting its new line of Visiomer Terra products at the American Coatings Show in Atlanta, Georgia. On March 1, 2014, the Acrylic Monomers Business Line began bundling methacrylate monomers based to a significant degree on renewable resources under the product family Visiomer Terra.

Visiomer Terra showcases the partially bio-based products that are already part of the Acrylic Monomers portfolio and is expected to continue growing in the future. "Thanks to Visiomer Terra, we can already offer our customers products that combine outstanding properties for end-use applications with a source of bio-based raw materials. Developing new products based on renewable resources is a fixed component of our development work. We also continuously evaluate potential options for manufacturing existing products from bio-based raw materials," explains Hans-Peter Hauck, head of the Acrylic Monomers Business Line.

Visiomer Terra IBOMA allows manufacturers to formulate environmentally safe coatings while keeping VOC content low. Visiomer Terra C17.4-MA and Visiomer Terra C13-MA increase hydrophobicity in resin systems, thereby improving resistance to water and solvents. In addition to the broad portfolio of specialty methacrylates that Evonik Industries produces and markets throughout the world
under the Visiomer name, the brand also includes MMA, GMAA, n- and i-BMA, and hydroxy methacrylates.
