Kleer polymers have highly controlled Tg and pH. Generally speaking, a lower glass transition temperature (Tg) polymer may be more expensive for several reasons, depending on the specific polymer and its intended application. However, a premium polymer opens up a world of flexibility not possible with a cheaper product.


Here are some factors that could contribute to the higher cost:


1. Specialized Monomers:

Polymers with lower Tg often require specialized monomers with specific properties. These monomers may be more expensive to produce or require complex synthesis processes, driving up the overall cost of the polymer.


2. Enhanced Performance:

Polymers with lower Tg may offer enhanced performance characteristics, such as improved flexibility, impact resistance, or better adhesion at higher dilution. Achieving these properties often requires the incorporation of additives or modifiers, which can increase the cost of production.


3. Research and Development Costs:

Developing polymers with tailored properties, including a lower Tg, typically involves significant research and development (R&D) efforts. These costs are often factored into the final price of the polymer to recoup investment in innovation.


4. Processing Complexity:

Lower Tg polymers may require more sophisticated processing techniques or equipment to achieve desired properties. This can increase production costs due to higher energy consumption, specialized machinery, or more stringent quality control measures.


5. Market Demand and Supply:

If there is high demand for polymers with lower Tg, manufacturers may price them higher to reflect their perceived value in the market. Additionally, if the supply of specialized monomers or additives is limited, it can drive up production costs and, consequently, the price of the polymer.


6. Quality Assurance:

Polymers with lower Tg often require tighter quality control measures to ensure consistency and reliability in performance. This may involve additional testing and quality assurance protocols, contributing to higher production costs.


7. Intellectual Property:

If a company has developed proprietary technology or formulations for producing polymers with lower Tg, they may charge a premium for their product to protect their intellectual property and maintain a competitive advantage in the market.


8. Environmental and Regulatory Considerations:

Some polymers with lower Tg may require the use of certain chemicals or processes that have higher environmental or regulatory compliance costs. These additional expenses can influence the final price of the polymer.


The higher cost of polymers with lower Tg can stem from a combination of factors, including the complexity of synthesis, enhanced performance requirements, R&D investments, processing considerations, market dynamics, quality assurance needs, intellectual property protection, and environmental or regulatory factors. Ultimately, the price reflects the value proposition of the polymer and its suitability for specific applications.
