Emulsion polymerization: an environmentally-friendly way to produce polymers
Research & development
A wide variety of products in diverse fields of application can take advantage of free radical emulsion polymerization. They go from paints, coatings and adhesives to cosmetics, sealants, drug delivery systems, textiles and automotive products.1 This versatile technique allows the production of aqueous dispersions of polymer particles stabilized by a colloid stabilizer that present innumerous advantages.
Batch release at PolymerExpert: a requirement for product quality.
PolymerExpert designs custom specialty polymers for its customers. Whether in the medical, cosmetic or industrial fields, our productions are subject to batch release to ensure product conformity and quality.
Polymers and naturalness in cosmetics
Polymers are regularly associated with synthetic materials, plastics and fossils. However, they are present in nature and have been used by human being since the dawn of time. Indeed, silk, proteins or cellulose are all natural polymers. Thus, many consumers are unaware that their cosmetic products contain polymers and especially, that these polymers can be of natural origin! Adrien Faure, expert at PolymerExpert, explains the use of polymers in the cosmetic industry.
Innovation in biobased polymers for cosmetics: Nature in service of beauty 
PolymerExpert has developed a 100% biobased rheology modifier for oils: th recently launched and already awarded gelling agent is a promising natural ingredient for innovative and ecologically responsible cosmetics. 
Chemical reverse engineering of polymers: a strategic ally for your innovation processes.
Research & development
Reverse engeineering of polymers consists in the study and analysis of a formulation or a mixture to obtain its composition. It allows to determine the nature and the quantity of the raw materials forming a product.
Poly(hydroxyurethane)s: biosourced isocyanate-free polyurethanes
Research & development
Polyurethanes (PUs) were discovered in the 1930s by Otto Bayer and were mainly used to replace natural rubbers during World War II. Their worldwide production represents 25.1 million tons in 2019.
