Deformulation, formulation and reverse engineering.
Intertek helps clients formulate and reverse-engineer formulations, materials and products.
Complex product formulations produce final products which can contain dozens of components at varying structural and concentration levels. Intertek research enables formulations of interest to be duplicated or improved upon. Deconstruction of a formulation can be as challenging as designing a new product. Intertek expertise helps clients understand what is going on.
Intertek scientists help clients understand the nature of the various components of a formulation, ingredient concentration and how these components and ingredients interact. Formulation studies are run for quality control issues, for evaluating market penetration of particular components, and to better understand particular formulations of interest. A coordinated approach brings together skills in extraction, separation science, spectroscopy and physical testing.
Intertek laboratories offer significant skills in this area, covering chemical and polymer formulations, surfactants, multi-layer systems, drug delivery systems, additives, consumer products, personal care products and more.
The performance of formulated products evaluated by consumers, and the interaction of the various components, help establish competitive advantages and allow the promotion of perceived advantages in the marketplace.
