Looking for the Ideal Materials
In most cases, even for highly innovative applications, it is not necessary to synthesize new polymers. Already known and available polymers can be sufficiently optimized by additives. This is how gaps in the portfolios of large manufacturers can be filled – by producing tailor-made compounds.
The development of such tailor-made compounds is the main focus of the business unit "Material Development" at SKZ. For this purpose SKZ has the means to process innovative materials with state of the art machinery and can thus create sophisticated industrial compounds. In addition to classic thermoplastics such as polyolefins, polyvinyl chloride, polyesters, polyamides, polycarbonates, or styrene copolymers and their blends, we also develop bio-polymers, wood polymer composites (WPC), high-performance plastics, nanocomposites and thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) according to specific customer requirements.
