Polymer Chemistry Innovations Offers Custom Manufacturing of Small Molecules and Specialty Polymers at Newly Constructed FacilityBy
Alvin, Texas – February, 2002 – Polymer Chemistry Innovations (PCI), a leading manufacturer of specialty and custom polymers, has completed construction and begun operations at its new Polymer Chemistry Chocolate Bayou (PCC) custom manufacturing facility on the Chocolate Bayou, 45 miles south of downtown Houston. PCC offers a unique combination of process development and custom synthesis capabilities for both small molecules and polymers. Fully equipped research and analytical labs, pilot plant and large-scale equipment allow PCC to manufacture materials in gram, kilogram and multi-ton quantities.
Hydrogenations, alkylations, condensations and transformations with polar substrates (esters, nitriles, ketones, alcohols, etc.) are some of the small molecule capabilities of the new facility. All major types of polymerizations (free radical, cationic, anionic, step growth and ring opening) are performed at PCC. The company also offers both batch and continuous complex distillation services including multi-component and azeotropic/extractive distillations among others.
“We are looking to partner with customers and build long-term relationships. Our ability at Polymer Chemistry Chocolate Bayou to follow a project from the early phase development stage through commercial production, combined with our extensive expertise in process development and scale-up, enables us to provide comprehensive solutions, not just products,” says Dr. Bronco Gordon, President of PCI. He adds that PCC welcomes the opportunity to work on projects that involve development of novel materials.
PCC’s customers have direct access to Ph.D. chemists, who work to provide quick turnaround times on projects. PCC is a member of the Synthetic Organic Chemical Manufacturers Association and is committed to Responsible Care.
