The following processes and equipment are available:
- Polymer syntheses on a scale of 50 – ml per batch:
Polymerizations (radical, ring-opening, ionic) in solution, substance, emulsion, suspension and special processes (“living” polymerizations)
Polycondensations (polysulfones, polyetherketones, polyamides, polyesters, polycarbonates, polyurethanes, etc. ) in solution, substance and melts
Polymer-analog conversions, polymer functionalizations
- monomer syntheses
- Film production from solution in a “laminar flow box” with automatic squeegee
- Thermoplastic extrusion with a mini extruder (approx. 0. 5 kg/h), production of melted compacts
- Analytical procedures: Spectroscopy (FT-IR, UV/Vis), gel permeation chromatography (GPC), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), solution viscometry

Polymaterials has a number of proprietary analytical methods, usually for use in our R&D projects. Further methods of instrumental analysis are commissioned externally on a case-by-case basis, whereby importance is always attached to the protection of the customer-specific IP.
Our polymer experts interpret the measurement results and use the different methods for efficient and targeted product development.
