CHEMICAL + OIL & GAS INDUSTRY | 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.
