Unique & Novel Solutions for Custom & Specialty Polymer Compounds
Developmental Polymer Compounding Tailored to Your Specific Requirements.
Insight specializes in polymer compounding tailored to your applications- making your product better by improving performance, enabling new designs and increasing productivity.
We serve customers that want product differentiation by focusing on specific performance objectives and requirements. We are not a one-size-fits-all company. We provide a depth of understanding and capability in polymer science and thermoplastic composite technology that provides the opportunity to develop products in conjunction with customers, matching their specific applications.
Improving strength, altering electrical and thermal behavior, lubricity, release, biocompatibility and other effects in balance with economic considerations is our expertise. This allows us to partner with customers and provide them with a competitive edge. We have helped customers with successful applications in markets including information technology, additive manufacturing, automotive, and healthcare.
Insight Polymers offers a wide array of services to enable your research and development goals from autonomous development projects to à la carte services to augment your internal development resources. Insight Polymers has an extensive combined development skill set from formulated products to process development. Insight Polymers leverages both our internal skills and tools along with an extensive network of external partners to help you reach your development targets.
Insight Polymers utilizes our internal twin screw extrusion assets to produce enabling quantities of innovative compounded products. We specialize in developmental batch sizes ranging from pounds of material up to truck load quantities. We can implement novel development process design for proof of concept demonstration as well as small-scale manufacturing. Our material handling capabilities allow introduction of pellets, powders, fibers and liquids to be carefully introduced to our twin-screw extruders.
We recognize the importance of complementing custom plastic compounding with material testing during innovative product development. Our in-house injection molding and film capabilities allow production of market relevant test specimens for property evaluation. Thermal, rheological and mechanical property evaluations are available internally and our extensive external network of development partners supports access to nearly any specialized testing protocol needed during development.
