Polymers are either synthesized directly from the monomers or using the interim step of the prepolymer. The quality of the monomers or prepolymers is of decisive importance for the properties of the polymer. These can often be produced with very high purity using single or dual stage Short Path Distillation. For this, for example, the technical monomers are distilled in order to gain very pure quality monomers or after the formation of prepolymers to remove any remaining excess of monomers down to a minimal content.
The processed source materials:
The processed source materials include monomers, oligomers and prepolymers of epoxy resins, acrylates, polyurethanes, PE waxes and polyglycolethers.
