Polymeric Products Enhancement and Customization

Providing the oil sector with custom polymer solutions

Despite significant growth and ubiquity of polymer products, the polymer industry continually faces new customer demands, global competition, fluctuating oil prices, and growing environmental concerns. Many polymer related challenges, such as developing new materials, enhancing the performance of existing polymeric materials, and developing environmentally friendly materials remain partially unsolved. KISR initiated the PPEC Program to address these challenges through the use of training and research as well as by collaborating with various stakeholders in the polymer industry. The Program also conducts research to develop customized polymers with enhanced properties and additives to enhance the competitiveness of Kuwait’s petrochemical industry.
