Contract and Toll Manufacture

When you require polymers or fine chemicals on a commercial scale, look no further than Witton. We take can take the most complex formulas and scale them up into huge volumes, and we can do it extremely quickly to ensure deadlines are met and market opportunities capitalised upon. Our adaptable plant and range of vessels enables us to provide contract manufacturing services for any requirement – however large or small the batch. We can also provide toll manufacturing services, producing anything from hundreds of kilos to thousands of tons of materials per year, with finished products despatched in a choice of kegs, drums, bags, FIBCs or bulk loads to any destination in the world.

Polymers and Pre-Polymers

A core component of Witton’s operations is the development and optimisation of polymerisation processes. Most monomers may handled and reacted with redox initiators, azo initiators or thermal initiators such as peroxide. Reactions can be carried out in water or solvent, and the molecular weight can be controlled by the choice of reaction conditions or by using a suitable chain transfer agent.

We also have a considerable amount of experience manufacturing moisture curing polyurethane prepolymers based on MDI, IPDI, oligomeric isocyanates and silanes in combination with polyols. These are typically used in the production of sealants and adhesives.

Fine Chemicals & Dyes

As well as manufacturing, isolating and drying a diverse range of fine chemicals (including acids, alcohols, aldehydes, amines, amides, esters and aromatic compounds), Witton can also offer a service to recover chiral resolving agents.

Dyes and chemicals for a range of industrial applications can also be produced. We have recently manufactured dyes based on violanthrone, coumarine and pthalcyanine – these high value, low volume dye derivatives are made according to customer specification.
