Properties of styrene-acrylic and styrene butadiene-latexes The glass transition temperature (Tg) of styrene-acrylic and styrene butadiene copolymers can be varied within a wide range by changing the ratio of hard monomer (styrene) and soft monomer (butadiene respectively n-butylacrylate). Papers for rotogravure printing require a very flexible coating layer, which can easily adapt to the surface
