SPIC Facilities for sustainable polymers

Developing sustainable polymer solutions is teamwork. At first, the SPIC partners will obtain a good picture of your application needs. Afterwards, we will jointly agree about the approach to develop the right sustainable polymer solution. Therefore, our SPIC facilities offer a wide range of technologies and analyses to develop new sustainable polymers.

Technologies

Your sustainable polymers need to be manufactured efficiently, affordable and in a sustainable manner. Therefore, SPIC has the capability to process polymers using a wide range of technologies. In addition, our technologies are available from laboratory, pilot and production scale, see below this page. Interested to know more about the specific technology SPIC can offer? Please click Technology.

Analyses

Your sustainable polymer solution must meet the right quality and performance. Therefore, SPIC has a myriad of research capabilities to test and modify the properties of sustainable polymers. In this way, we assure that the final properties of your polymer solution will work for your application. Interested to know more about the specific analyses SPIC can offer?
