OUR RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT
The development team at Synthopol Chemie comprises around 30 chemists, application engineers and lab technicians who create optimal product solutions for and in cooperation with our customers. Each and every product developed undergoes comprehensive application testing: our resins are applied to a vast range of test surfaces and tested for physical and mechanical characteristics such as hardness, elasticity, and flexural and tensile strength.
Artificial weathering equipment simulates strong solar radiation and tropical temperatures. Corrosion protection values are determined by means of salt spray and condensed moisture tests. Our application testing also includes measurements made in an outdoor weathering station and measurement studies conducted in Florida. Product simulations under laboratory conditions and monitoring of production sequences in our large-scale plants until product maturity round off our development processes.
