Acrylics and Acrylates

Super Categories


Known Synonyms

Acrylate styrene copolymer
Acrylate Tackifier
Acrylic Polish
acrylic polymers
Cyanoacrylates (superglue) polymerise on contact with water vapour and are therefore a bigger problem in dry environments, where more uncured product becomes inhalable. Acrylates are widely used for moulding of plastics and as a bone cement in orthopaedics.

Dentures are often made from acrylates causing problems in dental technicians. Nail extensions are often acrylic and cause problems in nail bars.

Oasys Notifications for Acrylics and Acrylates

The Oasys Audit scheme started midway through 2010 and collects agents typed in through the Oasys program. The years before 2010 show old data entered during 2010 or later and are likely to have many fewer notifications. We expect Oasys to become more widely adopted as time goes by so increasing notifications does not necessarily mean an increasing problem.
