The polymerization takes place between tiny droplets of MMA suspended in a solution of water and catalyst. Because we are able to tightly control the reaction, the resulting beads can have a defined and narrow molecular weight and a unique size and shape. As a result of changing these parameters, we can greatly change the way the polymer performs in different applications.
Our control of temperature is especially critical, consequently we have developed specialist equipment which provides a very fine process temperature control.
We achieve further performance modifications by selecting the appropriate reagents and washing and sieving processes. Finally, we routinely undertake laboratory analysis of samples of finished materials to confirm physical, optical, and chemical properties.
