Unlike PAN, Topas
COC can be easily melt processed on most common thermoplastic processing equipment, including mono and multi-layer film, sheet, and extrusion coating lines, along with injection and blow molding processes.
has completed commercial-scale production runs and is testing and validating early pre-production samples tailored to specific end-use applications.
The particle size (diameter) of the elastomeric particles in Topas
was determined by electron microscopy.
According to the company, the proceeds of the Series A funding will enable Topas
to expand and accelerate its proprietary liver-based tolerance induction platform and to progress with its own product development efforts in multiple autoimmune and inflammatory indications including multiple sclerosis into clinical proof-of-concept (POC) stage.
Specific processing recommendations for each grade are available on the Topas
