Bimax® Acrylates & Specialty Monomers
The Bimax® brand is a line of specialty acrylic monomers and polymers, as well as other organic specialties. These products can be formulated into coatings, adhesives, resins, and latexes for optical, electronic, and industrial applications.

Our customer driven approach and focus on technology make us a leader in development and manufacture. Beyond our standard offerings, we work closely with customers to design and produce exclusive products

Example Applications:

Contact Lenses
Methacrylates, crosslinkers, and UV blockers have been incorporated into contact lens formulations since the 1970s. Gelest offers a wide variety of high purity and custom monomers for hydrogel contact and intraocular lenses.

Adhesives
Gelest supplies products for various functions in adhesive applications.

3D Printing
Resins used in SLA/DLP 3D printers require photocurable moieties, such as (meth)acrylate monomers that undergo radical chain-growth polymerization, to ensure crosslinking. Typical acrylate photoresins are comprised of (multi)functional monomers, oligomers, a photoinitiator, and an optical absorber.

Coatings
Several monomers have been formulated for use in silicone release coatings, scratch resistant surfaces, radiation curable coatings, solvent coatings, and coatings with high heat and chemical resistance.

Water Treatment
Gelest offers a wide range of monomers used in flocculants and coagulants for industrial water treatment applications.

Thickeners for Personal Care
Ethoxylated monomers are able to modify the surface activity of water-soluble polymers used in cosmetic and thickening applications.
