The
trial production.

We believe that Polymaterials is the only medium-sized company in the German-speaking area that can offer the complete polymer R&D chain as a service, from the development of new polymers in the laboratory to synthesis and upscaling in the pilot plant. We are also able to provide customers with sample quantities of polymers for trials by their customers, and for market launch. Our capacities for synthesis range up to around 100 tons per polymer and year.

This is equally attractive for raw material manufacturers, who want to outsource such activities, as well as for start-ups who want to avoid the need for setting up their own pilot plants. In addition, plastics users are increasingly using our R&D processes to tailor their specific material.

Our
polymers.

Polymaterials has a very wide range of expertise when it comes to the design and adaptation of polymer structures to meet specific property profiles for all kinds of applications. In our own projects, we also deal with the development of new polymers for use as support material in 3D printing by FDM, and with polymers made from renewable raw materials.

In particular, the use of monomers from renewable sources has an immensely high potential to reduce or even eliminate the use of petrochemical raw materials. We are able to adapt polymers to a wide variety of property profiles by combining different monomers and by choosing suitable polymerization processes. If you are interested, please contact us, we will also find an optimized solution for your application.

Benefits for customers:

3D printing and, above all, the use of renewable raw materials for the production of plastics are leading topics of the future. Polymaterials has a high level of expertise, its own material solutions and a complete process chain for the production of new polymers for these highly important fields.

The
compounds.

The creation of new and the optimization of existing property profiles of plastic recipes is the domain of compounding. Thanks to our equipment (planetary roller and twin screw extruders) and technologies (compound screening with the X-Plorator® technology), we are able to find the best and most suitable formulations faster and in a more targeted manner than with the conventional approach. The X-Plorator® technology is also an ideal starting point for combining compound development with artificial intelligence (AI) methods.
