Scott Bader Company Ltd and the University of Liverpool have formed a joint venture to develop a polymer chemistry platform.

Polymer Mimetics will reportedly build on technology developed by Professor Steve Rannard, from the university’s department of chemistry with funding of more than £1 million.

According to Scott Bader, the technology makes polymers with improved degradability for coatings, composites and speciality additives.
