Polymer science has evolved over the years by a need to produce new materials for new applications. While some materials have been on the market for a while, there exists a need to optimize their properties to meet specific requirements. And when it comes to developing new materials, more emphasis is being placed on controlling the manufacturing process to manipulate molecular weight or develop novel architectures.

Polymers have experienced so much market success because it is possible to build properties into the material. Further advances in polymer research will enable the materials to meet the demand for highly specialized applications, such as those found in optics and electronics.

Almost daily, new developments are emerging from advanced materials and polymer research labs around the world: novel electroactive polymer actuators; polymer nanofilms; self-healing polymers; electrically conducting tissue; embedded waveguide sensors in polymer membranes…But to compete and -- better yet -- get an edge on your competitors, you must be the first to have this new technology. Technology can lead to innovative ideas and new products.
