The thermal degradation of copolymers based on butyl acrylate-methyl acrylate-acrylic acid used as acrylic pressure-sensitive
adhesives, especially for bonding of plasticizer containing materials, has been investigated using thermogravimetry and pyrolysis-gas
chromatography at 250°C. It was observed that during the pyrolysis of butyl acrylate-methyl acrylate-acrylic acid copolymers
unsaturated monomers as methyl acrylate, methyl methacrylate, butyl acrylate and butyl methacrylate were formed. During the
side-chain butyl acrylate-methyl-acrylate-acrylic acid-copolymer degradation the presence of methyl alcohol and butyl alcohol
A combination of pyrolysis and gas chromatography were used to investigate thermal degradation products formed from acrylic
copolymers containing alkyl acrylate and methacrylate. The method provided an analytical tool for characterizing the chemical
composition and structure of the degradation products. Thermal degradation of the synthesized copolymers was analyzed using
isothermal (250 °C) pyrolysis–gas chromatography. The degradation process, and the nature and amount of pyrolysis products,
provides relevant information about the thermal degradation of acrylic copolymers and the mechanism of pyrolysis. During pyrolysis,
the formation of corresponding olefins, alcohols, acrylates and methacrylate was observed.

Acryliccopolymers based on alkyl methacrylates were synthesized in ethyl acetate at 77 °C by 50 wt% of polymer content with 1-h dosage time of monomer and 3-h
blend of fluoropolymer and acryliccopolymers. Durability and outdoor weathering performance is dependent on the homogeneous blend of the two copolymers [ 1 ]. So, investigative analytical tools are required to study the affect of synthesis parameters
