Polymer Product Processing Development Support

Polymer product processing support includes compounding, extrusion and injection moulding services on a lab scale

Product development is a critical component of the polymer industry. Creating new processes to develop new products is a slow and expensive process if regular scale production facilities are used. It can also produce large amounts of expensive material that is unfit for commercial use. Without specialist help, discovering the optimal process for material production can be a long and difficult endeavour.

Our global polymers and plastics laboratories can supply the analysis, testing services and guidance that your business needs quickly and at the highest level of quality.  Our laboratories have decades of expertise in polymer and plastic product development. Our expertise includes trouble shooting, process optimization, formulation, chemical analysis, regulatory compliance and certification.

Our laboratory scale facilities can produce the short runs of materials that your business needs to research and develop its products. Our processing resources are underpinned by our expert’s many years of experience. We can assess the process ability of a wide range of polymer /resin materials for multiple industry applications. This is due to our comprehensive understanding of polymer properties, including chemical testing and physical and mechanical testing. We can also asses how ageing will affect your products performance.

Intertek’s expertise help clients develop new products and materials, troubleshoot production processes, provide quality control for materials and support polymer research.  We also produce test specimens for a variety of uses, including processability studies.
