Polymer Technology Consulting

Bay Materials exists to overcome these advanced materials challenges. In practice, we work closely with customers to clarify their problem, develop viable alternatives, and design and execute project plans in manageable phases to accommodate review and control.

Normally our customers’ polymer needs are a subset of a larger product development effort. Our objective is to become a project leader for our customer, and shoulder responsibility for development of the polymer component.

We take ownership of polymer problems, and offer cost-effective turnkey solutions from project design to process scale up.

Bay Materials’ facility provides state of the art capability required for custom polymer chemistry and formulation. We relieve the need to build polymer expertise and facilities that may become idle upon project completion. We solve the material problems so you are free to address the product challenges.

Bay Materials has built a facility capability to formulate, analyze, develop, and scale-up polymer systems.

Chemistry Laboratory

Complete wet lab with capability to build polymers from monomer components, modify polymers, and conduct general chemical activities.

Analytical Laboratory

A state of the art set of instruments necessary to fully analyze and characterize polymer materials and other components found in polymer systems; thermal analysis, spectrometry, rheometry, surface properties, and structural properties.

Polymer Process Laboratory

Polymer properties are impacted by the process by which they were formed. Thermal history, process variables, and process equipment can all impact the final article. Efficient screening techniques are used initially in the polymer selection or development phase, but the final development phase requires the utilization of customary process equipment.

Our process laboratory is designed to quickly produce functional articles, or test samples, with small volumes of start materials. At this phase of development, the articles produced are normally adequate for product qualification.

Bay Materials has the experience, and knowledge to support process development and scale up. We help you avoid common pitfalls!

Life begins for a polymer system when it cools off from the final forming process. Molecular orientation, degree of crystallinity, chemical stability, and other properties all impact the final properties of the article. Everything matters down to the fine details!

We have learned through experience that a manufacturing process must have a robust processing window, and be process-able on appropriate scale equipment. Bay Materials has broad experience with all processes utilized for polymer production of polymer based products. We maintain a “small scale” process lab in-house, and we have relationships with large manufacturers for scale up and vendor development. Specifically we recommend and routinely collaborate with Stack Plastics for scale-up work or molding beyond our in-house capabilities.

From our perspective, the project is complete when the customer can place an order with their vendor, and have confidence in the outcome.
