StructureProperty Design - Polymer Design
Encapsulation of Organic Pigments

We provide specialization in organic / polymer syntheses and structure / property design for CASE (Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants, and Elastomers) materials:

  • Anionic, cationic, free-radical (thermal, redox, ctc, & raft), UV, condensation, & ring-opening polymerization of acrylics, silicones, vinyl ethers, styrene, vinyl acetate, vinyl imidazole, vinyl chloride, acrylamide, acrylonitrile, diene (butadiene/isoprene), cyclic ethers, fluorinated mono- & multi-functional monomers, cross-linkers, and functionalized monomers & oligomers
  • Emulsion (seed & in-situ of core/shell latices), bulk/solution (heterogeneous & homogeneous), suspension (bead & powder), & photo-initiated (cationic & radical) polymerization technique
  • Design & characterization of macro-molecular micro-architecture for novel polymers syntheses
  • Copolymerization (block, graft, star, alternating, comb, branched, random, RMR, TPE, & IPN)
  • Polymer blends & compatibilizers for impact modification, structure/property design & cost/performance balance for engineering plastics (Nylons, polyesters, polyurethanes, epoxies, PVC/PVDC, polyethers, & polyureas), TPU (thermoplastic urethane), & lubricant applications (oil additives, surfactants, viscosity index improvers, dispersants, & pour-point depressants)
  • Coatings/Colorants formulation/de-formulation, characterization, optimization, & production
  • Polymer curing (vulcanization at room/high temperature), promoters, accelerators, & modifiers
  • Aerobic & anaerobic adhesives/sealants formulation, characterization, & surface modification
  • Scale-up, toll manufacturing, & troubleshooting for polymer processing to meet specifications
  • Customer interactions, technical services, new business/market development, new products commercialization, & projects management (R&D, competitors analysis, costs estimation, strategic planning, projects feasibility analysis, gated project management, & decision making)
