TOPAS Advanced Polymers is a leading global supplier of high technology polymers used in a wide range of markets and products, from packaging films to medical devices to cell phones. We provide not just high-tech plastics, but strong technical support, enabling our customers to rapidly develop class-leading products that take full advantage of our unique products.
Our company's main product is the family of TOPAS® COC resins. These advanced polymers enable innovative product designs not feasible with other materials. Among their many attributes, TOPAS polymers deliver glass-like clarity, moisture barrier, stiffness and strength, excellent biocompatibility and good electrical insulation properties. The unique properties of TOPAS COC have led to a growing array of applications in healthcare, packaging, diagnostics and electronics.
The new TOPASBLEND® series of resins offers the benefits of polyolefins plus the high heat resistance of engineering plastics. Grades with HDT-B of up to 160°C are available. These new materials are being rolled out in the European market first, but are also available globally when requested.
TOPAS Advanced Polymers also sells norbornene, a cyclic olefin used in pharmaceutical intermediates, agricultural compounds, specialty fragrances and high-damping rubber. Our company is the world's largest supplier of this useful monomer and chemical intermediate, which is also used as a building block in the production of TOPAS COC.
