Makevale’s passion for R&D fuels every aspect of our work. Our high performance polymers allow our clients to improve their own products and processes. In 2010 our work was recognised with the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation.
Committed to working in close partnership with our customers, we have a track record of speciality polymers development based on our expertise built up over many years in fundamental physics, chemistry and materials science. We work closely with our customers to translate industry challenges into acrylic applications with attributes that add real commercial value.
When you buy Makevale high performance polymers you benefit from world class technical knowledge that is in-depth and specific to each industry we serve.
Our state-of-the-art technology allows us to develop speciality polymers with tailored characteristics. We are also able to research and replicate existing polymer applications; an ability which safeguards supply chains in the case of any one supplier failure.
Companies employ widely different additives and manufacturing processes, so require our specialty polymers to work effectively with their production process as well as to deliver their required product characteristics. We do this by varying particle sizes and molecular weights of the polymer beads, and through selecting the appropriate reagents and washing and sieving processes. In some cases we are able to invent a new chemistry to overcome a customer’s challenges.
We are able to tailor polymer applications, undertake blue-sky research, assist with patents, develop replacement speciality polymers for client formulation, analyse samples etc. Naturally, our R&D efforts are highly confidential and often in partnership with clients.
