Who We Are

PMSE was founded in 1924 as an association of scientists with an interest in understanding how to improve and understand paints and other polymeric coatings. The complex interactions and optimization between the polymeric material, solvents, substrates, and end use required a collaborative effort to understand fundamental property interactions. PMSE maintain this focus: connecting the unique design, functionality, engineering, and properties of macromolecular materials to make new and exciting applications for the world’s challenges.

Advancing Polymer Research

Focused on scientific discovery and research across macromolecular disciplines and their interaction with other scientific and engineering fields

Developing New Members

Developmental symposium and awards help promote new researchers and expose new ideas to the broader community

Connecting Our Community

Join PMSE and become a member of a supportive professional network of active and diverse members
