Abstract – The achievement of high solid content acrylic latex at a low viscosity obtained by copolymerization of methyl methacrylate (MMA) and butylacrylate (BA) via emulsion polymerization method. It  was  found  that,  for  the semi continuous copolymerization  of  methyl methacrylate  and  butyl acrylate  with  63%  solid content resin can  be  obtained  through  micro emulsion  polymerization in presence of potassium persulphate (KPS) as a initiator. Water was used as solvent. The effect of the initiator concentration and monomer to co-monomer ratio on solid content was studied. The copolymer was characterized by Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. Thermal stability of synthesized resins was studied by Thermo Gravimetric Analyzer (TGA). The high solid content acrylic polymer mostly used as a binder in paint industry because of its weatherproof& high thermal stability, productivity and economic factor.
