Markets

  • We aim to be your preferred partner for the production of custom monomers and polymers used in sensitive applications such as electronics, security, medical and imaging.

Polymers

We have many years of experience in the production of unique polymer architectures for application in lithography and electronics. In response to market requirements, our capabilities have been expanded and experience gained in performing advanced polymerisations, where emphasis is placed on strict quality control and consistency of process. Quality control methods including SQC, SPC and Six-sigma can be applied and a cGMP (Cleanroom Class 100‘000) facility is available for life science materials.



Radical Polymerisations

Custom synthesis and functionalisation of solution processable functional polymethacrylate: homopolymers, co- and ter-polymers

Radical Polymerisations

Controlled Radical Polymerisation

ATRP

We apply ATRP (Atom Transfer Radical Polymerisation) to synthesize polymers with the following properties:

  • well controlled molecular weight and low polydispersity
  • Block co-polymers
  • multi-functionalized co-polymers
  • end-group functionalization

These Polymers are used for:

  • Biocompatible polymers for medical devices & delivery systems
  • Cosmetics and Personal care
  • Electronics
  • Lithographic Polymers
  • Security Polymers
ATRP controlled radical polymerisation

Polycondensation

We perform synthesis of custom multifunctional monomers and carry out polycondensation reactions to produce customer specific:

  • Liquid Crystal Polymers/Oligomers
  • Polyimides
  • Functional Novolaks
Polycondensation

Customised Polymers

Polymer modification and functionalisation is achieved via:

  • Traditional post-polymerisation synthetic methods e.g. esterifications
  • Direct polymerization of functional monomers
  • Post-polymerization modification of monomer units
  • Use of functional initiators
  • End-group transformation chemistry
