2-Hydroxyethyl methacrylate is used in UV-curable inks and coatings. It is also used in adhesives, artificial nails, dental materials and lacquers. In dentistry, it is one of the main volatile acrylates along with methyl methacrylate. Further, it is used as a monomer in the synthesis of polymers for dental prosthetics and for geotechnical grouting in construction work.
