They can order samples of our polymers to help them find the right material for their process, application and requirements," said Judy Melville, Solvay Advanced Polymers' global industry manager for membranes.
In addition, if they have technical or business questions, manufacturers can locate members of the company's commercial and technical membrane team anywhere in the world, simply by clicking on the appropriate section of the world map.
"The web site also allows us to more quickly disseminate information about new product developments," said Melville
."For example, you can get detailed product information and request a sample of the new UDEL P-3500 LCD grade that was just introduced at ICOM 2002 this past July in Toulouse, France."
The lower level of cyclic dimer (LCD) present in the polymer can reduce scaling and promote longer run times.In addition, UDEL P-3500 LCD may offer a number of technical advantages such as higher fiber strength for fewer fiber breaks and more consistent filtration, plus fewer surface defects.Both factors can help improve membrane performance and production yield.
