We Provide a Wide Range of Polymer Compounding Services
Our services recognize that compounding is more than combining components in a formulation. We are aware of the complex interactions, both physical and chemical, that can take place during the compounding process. Dispersion, thermal, shear and interfacial sensitivity of components as well as pre- and post-compounding presence of water and volatile components and byproducts affect the finished product.
Skilled in Reactive Chemistry and Difficult-to-Handle Materials
If present, the interaction of reactive components increases the complexity. While compounding is the core of our services, we are sensitive to issues of the handling of components before compounding and after processing such as form, size, classification and packaging. Our practical experience and deep technical knowledge enable the best outcomes for the finished formulation.
Toll Compounding Services Personalized to Your Needs
Whether you need 5 lbs. or truckload quantities we will work with you to deliver custom tailored solutions. Our team will engage with you to understand what you want to achieve in terms of material performance and together develop a custom compound that satisfies your end-use requirements.
Implementing novel development process design with internal twin-screw extrusion pilot assets supports an efficient approach to new product formulation and process development. Polymer experts are available to carry out small development batch trials and quickly screen product and processing parameters for proof of concept demonstration and small-scale manufacturing.
Creating and/or adding functionality such as conductivity, aesthetics, flame retardance, toughness, strength, thermal stability, and surface properties to base resins via the incorporation of a wide range of additives.
A concentrated compound of colors and/or performance additives that allows processors to economically add functionality during processing. Expertise includes a wide range of polymer resins and blends, additives, modifiers, fillers and nanocomposites.
Fully Formulated Compounds
A ready-to-use compound as-is for downstream processing to produce injection molded parts, fibers, films, FDM filament for additive manufacturing. Can be as simple as a base resin and an additive (e.g. nylon with a reinforcing fiber filler) to a compound with several resins and additives (e.g. an automotive interior polypropylene (PP) TPO formulation).
