Project Beneficiary: SC LAMBDA MAT BUCURESTI SRL.
The Main Objective of this project is rendering at industrial scale of all research equipment created by COSFEL ACTUAL- at a demonstrative level, in order to implement and take over all technologies developed by this society, according to research result purchased through contract no.15/05.05.2015, entitled "Experimenting polymerization in a microwave field, in a controlled layer and disperse system".
Experimenting polymerization in a microwave field, in a controlled layer and disperse system
Acrylic emulsified copolymers can be successfully applied in various fields of activity such as: adhesives, emulsified film forming composites, textile treatment, paper industry, leather industry. Minor, yet significant appliances can be found in the calendaring of glass fibers, rheologic additives, various plastic masses, foam impregnation, concrete water repellant treatment, various inks and copying processes in pharma and cosmetics industries.
Obtaining dry acrylic copolymers is a major challenge and it has highly important appliances in agriculture (super absorbents), in water treatment (flocculants and scale repellers) and in cement slurry treatment for special appliances (filtering decelerators), etc.
Obtaining those polymers in dry state, through conventional technologies, takes two very distinct process stages and involves high costs of energy.
Specific project objectives:
- Establishing and developing an RD department inside LAMBDA MAT BUCURESTI, regarding this area of activity;
- Accomplishment of the emulsified polymerization reactor;
- Accomplishment of the polymerization reactor in controlled state;
- Developing a large range of emulsified and powder acrylic co-polymers, for various niche appliances.
- Accomplishment of the added installations and the automatic systems associated to reactors.
