Technical Information

MPI’s development services feature expertise in the following areas:

Polymer applications:

  • Coatings
  • Bio-based polymers
  • Plastic additives
  • Medical or topical
  • Conductive polymers
  • Resins for composites

PILOT / CAPABILITIES
Scale of reactions:

  • GC-MS (quantitative chemical identification)
  • ReactIR (in-process reaction monitoring and rate determination)
  • Titrations (acid number for qualitative process progress and extent)
  • Solid content (finished quantitative method)

INNOVATION / RESEARCH
Examples of polymer technologies that MPI can fabricate:

  • Alkyds (long, medium or short oil length)
