The successful production of quality composites, coatings and adhesives requires monomers featuring low color and acid in addition to the appropriate inhibitor, viscosity and refractive index values. A low color raw material will enhance the appearance of the final product. The low acid value reduces the amount of inhibitor required while extending the shelf life of your product. A consistent viscosity allows you to reproduce the same product time after time.
The challenges involved in formulating products can be overcome by the inclusion of specifically designed monomers. Monomers used in these applications can act as diluents or actively participate in forming a polymer matrix. To modify the polymer matrix, you must know what monomers can be added in what quantities to achieve the desired properties. The process of identifying the correct molecule with the correct purity and inhibitor level is difficult. Allow Esstech, Inc. to simplify the process.
Formulating high quality products depend on the characteristics of your raw materials like color, acid, inhibitor, viscosity and refractive index. Consistent low color positively contributes to the appearance of the final product. The low acid value helps to stabilize the product and ensures an extended shelf life. Subsequently, the low residual acid content also allows for lower levels of inhibitor without compromising stability. Consistent viscosity delivers the desired physical characteristics while achieving the required refractive index that matches your final product. Esstech, Inc. is a reliable source that can produce materials with such strict specifications.
Esstech, Inc.'s high-purity monomers are ideal for optical and medical applications, providing manufacturers with consistent low color, appropriate inhibitor packages, consistent low acid and enhanced stability. These requirements must continually be met without deviation in order to efficiently manufacture quality materials.
