From traditional polyurethane and polyamide chemistries to complex emulsion polymerisation chemical transformations Thomas Swan is now an established reliable partner in the marketplace.
We have worked with multi-national companies on the development and scale-up of polymerisation processes and projects involving the modification of polymer intermediates.
Typically, Thomas Swan is asked to work with the multi-national’s Technical Team to help scale up a newly developed product or system and to produce the first few kilos or tonnes for product launch & market evaluation.
Our Technical Team has a suite of advanced Hazard Assessment techniques and the latest analytical equipment to help with further investigation of the processes.
Following product launch, Thomas Swan can then act as an extension to our customers production facilities, utilising our extensive suites of multipurpose reactors to ultimately produce tens to hundreds of tonnes of finished product depending on the process and customer requirements.
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.
