Methacrylates and Reproductive & Developmental Effects

Reproduction and development is the complex process by which we reproduce and develop into the next generation of individuals. All aspects of the process from fertility, through pregnancy, birth, early development and adolescence are included in these terms.

Studies on short chain alkyl-methacrylate esters (MMA, EMA, nBMA, iBMA and 2-EHMA) have not provided evidence that they selectively harm reproduction or cause birth defects. Reviews by government agencies have not identified any of these materials as reproductive or developmental toxins.  For more information, see the following:
