Advent are a global supplier of research materials and stock a wide range polymers including Polyester, Polyetheretherketone (PEEK), Polyimide and Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) in multiple forms.
Polymers range from familiar synthetic plastics such as polystyrene to natural biopolymers such as DNA and proteins that are fundamental to biological structure and function.
Polymers, both natural and synthetic, are created via polymerization of many small molecules, known as monomers. Their consequently large molecular mass, relative to small molecule compounds, produces unique physical properties including toughness, viscoelasticity, and a tendency to form glasses and semi crystalline structures rather than crystals. The terms polymer and resin are often synonymous with plastic.
