Exova’s polymer synthesis and scale-up services help you get to market quicker.

New technologies often require synthesis of novel polymers with properties tailored to the application. Choosing a partner that can assist you with your synthesis requirements, optimize the process (including purification) and fully characterize the final product all in a timely manner is critical for the commercial success of your product.

Initial research in laboratories typically involves the bench-scale production of promising materials. As product programs evolve, much more of these materials are required for testing, evaluation in applications, and end product formulation. Scale-up of the initial bench-scale preparation is necessary to make larger quantities.

Whether you are performing polymer synthesis or scale-up, Exova has well-equipped testing facilities and qualified technical staff located worldwide with the expertise to get your product through a comprehensive testing program.

Our laboratory is equipped with both glass reactors (up to 25L scale) and high-pressure stainless steel reactors (2L and 20L) for the polymerization of gaseous monomers. We also have the analytical tools required to characterize synthesized polymers. 

We have been involved in Research and Development (R&D) projects requiring synthesis of:

  • Polyurethanes
  • Acrylate elastomers
  • Fluoro-elastomer copolymers
  • PMMA copolymers
  • Graft modification of polyamides
  • Biodegradable polyesters

Our clients range from large multinational companies (support of their R&D initiatives) to smaller start-up companies looking to obtain more significant amounts of their exploratory products.

Our quality system can be tailored to meet your needs. We can operate under exploratory conditions all the way up to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) production: incoming inspection of raw materials, SOP’s, staff training, and more.
