Chemicals And Basic Materials Survey

Hi, i am the founder & ceo of zintro. We are brainstorming on ways that we can deliver more high quality inquiries in the chemicals and basic materials markets to you. Specifically, we are looking for inquiries that could lead to larger projects as opposed to just micro-consults (although those are ok too.). It would be great if you could help us help you. Specifically: 1. What is the title/department/division/company of individuals we should we target to improve our chances of finding you good prospects? 2. How would you describe the projects? E.G. Related to plant setup? Production? Distribution? Engineering? Equipment purchase? Supply/demand? Uses for chemicals? Etc. 3. Are there any specific companies/divisions/departments you think we should target? 4. Where are most of your current customers? Near your office? What state, region, country? Thanks so much for your help. Hopefully, we will deliver some good projects to you soon. - stuart

Material Science

We are looking for a materials expert with a specific skillset in very hard and durable materials such as ceramics and more specifically sapphire (al2o3). Specifically, we want to identify those in the medical device field working with crystalline structures such as sapphire and also laser fiber optics. We need proven experience with evaluating these materials in terms of their strength and more importantly studying their failure modes due to either mechanical or thermal stresses. The analysis may involve studying existing components and their fracture modes evaluating root causes of such fracture and later performing computational analysis such as finite element analysis (fea) to study the specific design function and performance we expect from such a material. I can’t stress enough that we are really seeking a leading expert in material properties and analysis of such crystalline structures as sapphire with a proven history in their design and use in various mechanical or medical devices. We are particularly interested in learning more about the thermal properties and how thermal stresses can impact failure modes.

Photoresist Materials

We're looking to develop a material that we can use as a soluble support material in the fused deposition process in 3d printing. One of the routes that surfaced is centered on the use of the same techniques used in photoresists to produce a soluble resin. There seems to be a lot work with photosensitive agents in styrene copolymers theses positive photoresists use uv activation and an alkali solvent. As the sensitising agents are already combined with polystyrenes i reasoned that they could also be used in higher mw styrenes that could be used in our fused deposition process. I propose we could then use a uv light bath and dissolve the activated resist in alkali solvent. My question is, is it possible to create photo-sensitized higher mw polystyrenes? If so, we will need someone to guide us through the process in creating that ip.

Chemical Raw Material

The key questions in my mind are raw material market overview- supply chain and participants. Who are the end user industries (buyers) for these chemical raw materials (mentioned above?) what are the parameters that are considered for transaction (buying and selling) chemical raw materials? Shelf life packaging parameter environmental conditions (if there are other parameters kindly elaborate) what are the contracting terms and conditions-legal restriction, transport terms, etc. What are the various costs involved? What are the pricing model adopted by the buyer and the supplier?
