The Methacrylate Producers Association, Inc. (MPA) was formed in 1987. Its members are: Arkema Inc., The Dow Chemical Company, Evonik Cyro and Lucite International. MPA member companies work jointly to address important Health, Safety and Environmental issues involving the basic methacrylate monomer products.
Since its formation, MPA has focused on regulatory, technical and product stewardship issues facing methacrylic acid, n-butyl methacrylate, ethyl methacrylate, i-butyl methacrylate, methyl methacrylate and 2-ethylhexyl methacrylate. As part of this work MPA has completed a significant voluntary testing program for these compounds, in support of the continued manufacture and use of these products in a broad range of application areas that are important to the quality of our everyday lives.
