We are specialists in using advanced research tools and synthetic organic chemistry to develop new cutting edge products which meet specific market needs. Our research technology is based around antimicrobial coatings, formaldehyde free adhesives for fibre bonding and solvent free elastomeric adhesives.
Over the years, our chemist has developed many novel products, some to meet specific customer need and performance requirements.
Within this product portfolio, many products have achieved Patent status and have been successfully commercialised:
Vinyltrialkoxysilane resins to deal with water penetration into masonry substrates.
Polysiloxane primers with breathable characteristics. Designated SIL 12 & SIL 14.
Antifungal coatings meeting BS3900 Part G6. Designated SIL 10.
Impregnating silica gel adhesive for friable masonry surfaces. Designated SIL 20.
The following technologies are in an advanced stage of product and process development.
Antibacterial coatings with very strong activity against Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 25923), Escherichia coli (ATCC 25922), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (ATCC 27853), Clostridium difficille (Hospital Strain) & Bacillus steariothermophilus.
We are currently undertaking Phase I development work on anti-termite coatings & anti-mosquito coatings.
We have developed a platform technology for the manufacture of polyurethane foams using naturally occuring & raw materials. This tehnology can be used in the manufacture of rigid & viscoelastic foams.
We are always happy to speak with customers who are looking for specific products to suit specific applications.
