Acrylates are the salts and esters of acrylic acid. The acrylates readily form clear plastics due to a double carbon bond, directly attached to the carbonyl carbon, within their chemical structure. These plastics possess extremely high optical clarity, exceptional weatherability, good chemical resistance, and are available in biocompatible grades. In the medical industry acrylates are used in cuvettes, tubing, and blood plasma separators.
