Polymerization Processing Services
An Important First Step
Polymerization has been a core strength for Pressure Chemical since it was founded in 1964. Many of the polymer standards that we have produced during the past 50 years remain worldwide benchmarks of commercial polymers’ characteristics and quality.
- Anionic/cationic polymerization
- Block co-polymers
- Condensation polymerizations
- Emulsions polymerizations
- Free radical polymerizations
- Polymerizations involving gas-phase monomers
Our small scale pilot deck and larger scale commercial production facility provides multiple reactors from 50 gallons to 1,000 gallons that can be used for monomer pre-blending, polymerization and polymer isolation in one continuous process.
We can also work with gaseous and liquid monomers and have the systems in place to purify these monomers as required. If your reaction requires a flammable solvent or initiator, we can handle it safely. We can work with polymerization initiators such as alkyl lithiums, azobisisobutyronitriles (AIBN), bases, peroxides, pyrophoric metal and metal hydrides.
If you already have a finished polymer, but it requires modification, we can customize your material utilizing a variety of chemistries and equipment.
