Need and potential of digitalization in the development and production of polymers
May 20-25, 2018
Synthetic polymers are produced to achieve desired application properties tailored to customer needs. Today’s environment of rapidly accelerating technological innovation poses the challenge of bringing new products to market even faster. However, since the relationship between application property and polymer structure is not always understood, development of new polymers requires a significant number of iterative cycles. Furthermore, scale-up to industrial scale often needs additional steps.
