Example Applications

Contact Lenses

Methacrylates, crosslinkers, and UV blockers have been incorporated into contact lens formulations since the 1970s. Gelest offers a wide variety of high purity and custom monomers for hydrogel contact and intraocular lenses.


Gelest supplies products for various functions in adhesive applications.

3D Printing

Resins used in SLA/DLP 3D printers require photocurable moieties, such as (meth)acrylate monomers that undergo radical chain-growth polymerization, to ensure crosslinking. Typical acrylate photoresins are comprised of (multi)functional monomers, oligomers, a photoinitiator, and an optical absorber.


Several monomers have been formulated for use in silicone release coatings, scratch resistant surfaces, radiation curable coatings, solvent coatings, and coatings with high heat and chemical resistance.

Water Treatment

Gelest offers a wide range of monomers used in flocculants and coagulants for industrial water treatment applications.

Thickeners for Personal Care

Ethoxylated monomers are able to modify the surface activity of water-soluble polymers used in cosmetic and thickening applications.
