Polymers and plastics are some of the most versatile materials in existence and are used in all aspects of our daily lives. They have revolutionised the manufacture of consumer products and industrial applications such as aerospace, automotive, electronics and packaging.
Across the polymers and plastics supply chain, a range of challenges are encountered in safety, quality, process, regulatory compliance, performance and lifecycle. Whether you are a base chemical provider, additive supplier, converter, compounder or end user, overcoming these challenges can give your business a significant commercial advantage.
With decades of experience in the polymers and plastics industries, our scientists have the knowledge to help you improve and qualify materials and products. Our laboratory scale polymer processing facility can support you in product and process development. From raw material selection, material development, compounding and conversion production stages to prototyping and final product, our experts can assist.
Polymer and plastic testing services include chemical, physical, thermal, optical and mechanical properties which identify the characteristics of your raw materials or polymer and whether they meet specification. Our insight can help you to understand how suitable the materials are for application and how they age. Our experts can advise on formulation development, competitor material deformulation, comparative analysis of blends, regulatory submission data requirements and how polymer additives relate to performance.
We can also help you navigate the complex world of regulation.
