Bioastra is positioning itself as a world leader in smart materials thanks to their unique, multidisciplinary expertise in polymers science, chemical engineering, textiles, surface science and molecular biology.
WHAT ARE SMART POLYMERS?
Smart Polymers are long-chain macromolecules that abruptly change their properties when triggered by an external stimulus.
What is unique about Smart Polymers is the ability to change properties in a DISCONTINOUS, ABRUPT manner in response to triggers of a very small magnitude – in a responsive, almost life-like manner.
THE BIOASTRA SMART POLYMER PLATFORM
The Bioastra Smart Polymer Platform is a unique industrial resource that synthesizes the chemistry, experiments, designs, data and prototypes developed over years to correlate smart polymer properties to structure. This platform allows the Bioastra team to quickly respond to incoming spec sheets form clients and produce timely, cost-effective solutions on demand.
In time, we hope to make portions of this database accessible to our clients.
