Chemists face challenges everyday trying to develop unique formulations that meet customer’s demands and expectations. Styrene maleic anhydride copolymers can help chemists to reach the required performance of their end products thanks to the polar and non-polar moieties on the same molecule. The maleic anhydride functionality offers limitless chemical modifications that can vary its solubility, Tg and hydrophobicity.

Some examples of renowned industries using this copolymer are: 

Building and construction
