Polymer Formulation and Custom Resins

When an application has specialized requirements that can't be met through traditional materials, new high-performance materials are possible through polymer formulation. For example, aerospace and space-based applications have special criteria, such as atomic oxygen and radiation resistance, that aren’t normally a concern for traditional applications. Polymer formulation can address certain unique properties without having to synthesize an entirely new molecular design.
