Why choose us?

Experienced and streamlined

CH-Polymers’ story began some 40 years ago. Our extensive binder knowledge has been acquired through mergers and acquisitions during this time, until CH-Polymers came into being in 2009.

Our laboratory is one of the best in Europe for polymer emulsion development and application testing. The production plant in Kaipiainen, Finland, dates from the 1980s and is one of the largest acrylic dispersion plants in Europe. Our long history can be seen in our knowledgeable personnel and the vast expertise gained through many years of practical experience.

Experienced and streamlined

It all comes down to people

Our people are our most important asset, but they need an excellent laboratory and a smoothly running production plant in order to serve our customers best. We also benefit from our vast network, which consists of both academic researchers and commercial operators. We are constantly learning valuable lessons our customers too.

Our personnel are highly qualified and experts in their fields. Each of our three main product categories has its own experts. The knowledge our employees have acquired during their careers is priceless. All our employees are experienced professionals and well connected within the industry. They are problem solvers and innovators. They are committed to our clients and eager to continuously improve the products. They listen to your needs and they know how to solve your problems.

Our network consists mainly of academic researchers in Finland and in Europe, as well as public research centers and our customers. We’re active in many publicly funded R&D projects with both academic and commercial interests. As a member of many industry associations, such as EPDLA, we can ensure that our word is heard when decisions are made.

World class laboratory

World class laboratory

Our laboratory is the key to our success. By bringing together highly-skilled scientists and the latest equipment, we can develop and test our products and also understand end user requirements. We’re constantly looking for new features to enhance our products’ competitiveness. We’re the only company conducting emulsion polymer R&D in our region, and we believe that we know the market requirements and conditions, such as the hard winter climate. We continuously invest in our laboratory to ensure that we keep pace with the latest industry trends.

Our production plant

Our production plant has several independent reactor lines. Adding pilot facilities makes it perfect for product development and bulk production. The co-operation between our R&D and production staff is seamless. From a one liter laboratory reactor we go, for instance, to 200 liter pilot production and then to a larger pilot before final production. We have longstanding relationships with our raw material suppliers to guarantee delivery reliability.  This is a must, since we operate with large industrial corporations and any hiccup could turn into lost production time.

Our production plant

Close-knit with customers

Research projects are most successfully done together with our customers. We often offer our facilities for testing purposes. We are proud to have the biggest companies in our field as our customers, but every customer is equally important to us – no matter how large or small.

CH-Polymers Oy is committed to improving quality and to expanding the company’s activities, with the aim of ensuring consistent customer satisfaction.

“Our competitors are international giants. This means that we need something special to stand out from the crowd. Nobody else in the field is as committed to customer-oriented R&D as we are. “
