In this work, copolymers and a multilayer core/shell P(BA/BA-MMA/MMA) composite latex of methyl methacrylate (MMA), butyl acrylate (BA), and ethyl acrylate (EA) were prepared by emulsion polymerization. The thermal and the mechanical properties of their films were characterized by differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) and dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA), while the acoustic absorption performance of dried films were estimated using the standing wave pipe method. The results show that a multilayer core/shell polymer of P(BA/BA-MMA/MMA) has many glass transitions in a broad temperature region, and in the frequency range of sound, this core/shell polymer has better acoustic absorption properties than the random copolymer of P(BA-MMA). © 1995 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
