Performance

Tailored responses to inquiries

Each polymer performs differently, even polymers for the same target that are designed to work in different environments.  For example, a nickel polymer designed to work at 40 degrees in a low pH environment will perform differently to a nickel polymer designed to work at 10 degrees in a high pH environment.  This makes providing generic data challenging.

We often get asked for polymers to trial within a particular target material.  This is also challenging for the same reason, though not impossible.

In both cases we can be most helpful if we can find out the molecular targets and the environment from which you’d like them to be extracted.  We can then give a quick response on whether it’s likely that appropriate polymers can be made, pick out good case examples and provide example polymers with suggested experiments, typically repeating tests we have carried out here.
