Technology

Founded with technology from some of the world's top chemical and polymer firms, TOPAS Advanced Polymers prides itself on continually advancing its leadership position in cyclic olefin copolymers. For example, our products are made with sophisticated metallocene catalysts. This technology enables us to offer a wider range of products than any other maker of cyclic olefin resins. We have the ability to deliver materials with glass transition temperatures ranging from near room temperature all the way to 190C - and plan to extend this range in the near future. Our technical team is developing new impact resistant resins. Our development of high-flow materials makes it possible to manufacture the most advanced analytical and display products, with the finest mold detail replication available. Our streamlined and efficient manufacturing technology also gives us a cost advantage versus similar materials. Let us provide the winning edge to your next development.
