Polymer Process Solutions
Artisan solves your process development and/or process improvement challenges. Our polymer processing solutions are the answer to your application challenges or needs.
Artisan’s expertise in the field of monomer and polymer process solutions can help you address the environmental impacts of plastics and bioplastics.
An advantage of polymer processing over manufacturing with more traditional materials is that there are opportunities for cost savings through minimizing specific processing steps. Removing solvents or odors from monomers and low viscosity polymers can be difficult, especially in a single, continuous pass or as a batch process. Purifying high viscosity polymers is even more difficult, since both heat and mass transfer rates are inhibited.
Artisan’s mechanically agitated, thin-film, short-residence-time process technology is ideally suited for heat-sensitive and viscous materials or products that foul, foam, or contain solids. Our equipment can process materials with viscosities up to 1 million centipoise.
- Purification of monomers
- Stripping residual monomers and solvents from polymers
