Products by product group
Here you find all our products catagorized by the chemical group they belong to. If you know where the product you are looking for belongs to just click on the group and find the product.
Another approach is to look for a product by application or industry where it is used. From both angles the same products are shown.
However, it is of course still posible that you may not find the exact product you are looking for, while it is still very likely that BAX offers you the solution for your search. In that case, please do not hesitate to inform us. Besides the most current products we put up here, it is very much possible that our suppliers can offer and the supply this product the same. All our product pages show, next to a brief introduction, the specifiation sheet (TDS or Sales specifications) Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are avialable on request. )
MONOMERS | ALPHA METYL STYRENE (AMS)
Alpha-methylstyrene (AMS) is a colourless liquid used as a co-monomer in a range of polymerisation processes to improve impact and heat resistance. In many applications of this kind it competes with styrene, over which it has some stability and handling advantages. It can be copolymerised with monomers such as benzene, acrylates and styrene.
The primary use of AMS is in acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) resins, which account for around a third of demand. In ABS resins it prevents heat distortion. AMS has multiple applications in products like perfumes, antioxidants, drying oils and lubricating oils. Other uses include the production of low molecular weight polymers, which form viscous liquids used in adhesives and coatings, waxes and plasticisers.
