Polymers & Monomers
PCAS has a very long experience in polymer synthesis, with a focus on specialty and tailor-made polymers.
To meet your needs for innovation and add new functions to your products, we insert chemical groups in the monomers and polymers to give them specific properties. Polymers manufactured by PCAS are used in a wide range of applications:
- Cosmetic & Medical applications
- Microelectronics & Organic electronics
- Aeronautic & fire-proof fibers
- Coating & Graphic arts
- Water treatment & Metal Working Fluids
Organic photovoltaic polymers are opening the way to flexible solar cells with lower manufacturing cost. PCAS provides polymers for the active layer and the electron/hole transport layers.
Binders specifically suited for application in ink formulation can be offered on a custom synthesis basis.
Computer-to-Plate (CTP) offset printing
The printing industry uses a wide range of specialty polymers (light-sensitive or not), which provide specific functionalities.
PCAS developed a strong expertise in the production of the following polymers: acrylics, polyurethanes, urethane-acrylates, polyimides, novolac resins, diazo-resins, polyvinylbutyrals and polyvinylphosphoric acid.
Critical monomers or oligomers used in the preparation of the above polymers can also be produced on request by PCAS.
Others products entering into the formulation of the printing plates are also offered, such as photo acid generators and cyanine dyes.
