We continue to expand our polymerization capabilities as we identify new requirements. One such case was modifying our 1,000-gallon 316 SS polymerization reactor to handle even tougher challenges. Our internal maintenance team built a loop reactor system that increased the heat transfer capabilities by 200,000 BTU. This allows us to handle exothermic reactions with greater control and safety.
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.
