Polymer Solutions

Polymers are increasingly utilized in a broad range of sectors due to their unique blend of properties and relative low costs to other materials.  Lucideon provides expert consultancy, materials characterization and testing and analysis services to help solve complex challenges, inform product design and development and identify the root causes of failures.

Capabilities

To take full advantage of the beneficial properties of polymers, it is essential to understand the connection between polymer structure and process conditions to minimize quality issues, product failure and underperformance.  Lucideon’s team of polymer experts and analytical specialists can solve any polymer related challenge, including:

  • Overcoming quality and performance issues associated with raw materials or manufacturing processes
  • Reducing production delays and costs when you suddenly lose access to third party materials
  • Aiding cost cutting and achieving timely development of new products through polymer consultancy, materials development and process optimization.

Our polymer consultancy services can be applied to:

  • Any polymer material and manufacturing process - whether it's coating, blow molding, injection molding, extruding, melt spinning, 3D printing or more
  • Any segment of the value chain from OEMs to value added, parts & components and packaging manufacturers
  • Troubleshooting and solving issues related to undesirable or unknown material properties and manufacturing challenges
  • Development of new polymer materials, from material selection to testing, characterization and scale-up

At Lucideon, we understand that in order to maintain a competitive edge, it is essential to develop novel materials and processes for new products.  Therefore, we support our own internal polymer material developments and manage public funded projects with our collaborators from multiple organizations and industries.  Examples include:

Healthcare:

  • Antimicrobial polymers for woundcare
  • Bioresorbable, drug eluting composites for stents
  • Third gen. scaffolds

Aerospace:

  • Fiber reinforced composites for additive manufacturing

Energy:

  • Novel coatings for photovoltaics
  • Formulations for supercapacitor electrodes
