Polymerisation & Polymer Modification for Growing Businesses

Thomas Swan has considerable experience in the manufacture of a wide range of polymers and the modification of polymer intermediates. Using our multipurpose equipment, we can carry out a wide range of chemistries at kilo to multi tonnage quantities to suit your scale up needs.

Working with your Technical Team Thomas Swan can take your early-stage laboratory route and develop this into a workable manufacturing process. We have the capability to carry out full hazard testing and have considerable experience in the regulatory aspects (including REACH) of new product introduction.

Scale up is supported by a full suite of hazards evaluation and process evaluation tools to support the safe and efficient scale up of your polymer product to the required specification. Our manufacturing assets are regularly audited by our diverse customer base, and we welcome collaborative manufacturing projects serving our customers and ultimately our customer’s customer needs.

More recently, we have expanded our capabilities to include RAFT (reversible addition–fragmentation chain transfer) polymerisations. The past 20 years have witnessed a rapidly growing interest in RAFT polymerisation and the process is now a widely recognized polymerisation technique, adopted by the wider scientific community and beyond polymer synthesis laboratories, as a tool to generate materials with a broad range of applications from materials science to medicine.

We would be delighted to discuss this new and exciting chemistry, please use the contact form within the website to get in touch.

A testimonial from a growing Polymerisation & Polymer Modification Company

Thomas Swan helped us to develop a product for our very specific requirement, and without their help and expertise it is unlikely we would have been able to bring a product to market as quickly and successfully as we were able to with Thomas Swans help. We have been working together now for a couple of years and the level of assistance and support we have continue to receive has been excellent. Their helpfulness and flexibility has allowed us to offer unprecedented levels of support to our customers which has enabled us to grow our market share quickly and sustainably. Thomas Swan continue to be our first port of call when we are looking for assistance to improve existing or develop new products.
