Polymer and Composite Science and Technology Services
(Thermoplastic, Rubber/Elastomer, Thermoset Materials)
We help our clients surmount polymer and composite product and process technology challenges, as well as problems in selected areas of chemical technology, by providing focused and cost-effective services.
Polymers and composites manifest a great variety of phasic behaviors, morphologies, and complexities related to the nature and strength of the interfaces between their phase domains. They are used in many different technologies and end use applications. Our ability to provide comprehensive solutions to problems over this broad technology space is founded upon our depth of understanding of materials science and engineering combined with a wealth of experience. We will provide you the quality of services that you require and deserve from a team of professionals who care about your specific needs and who have the ability to address these needs successfully.
Our capabilities include a state-of-the-art product research and manufacturing laboratory, an ISO-9001 certified analytical laboratory, a composite material testing laboratory, a textile testing laboratory; and a network of additional resources for experimental work, and for business, market and technical information research.
If you prefer to learn more about what we do and how we do it before you contact us, please see the further information and links provided below.
Product research and development: We save our clients both time and money by helping them navigate through all stages of product research and development. Depending upon the client’s needs, our involvement can range anywhere from providing technology and market opportunity assessments to exploratory research and development (ideation and concept shaping) through help in product development and prototyping and in patenting inventions. In addition to our own in-house expertise, extensive laboratory equipment and facilities are available through one of our strategic partners to help address the needs of our clients in a comprehensive manner. We also provide technical writing services needed by our clients in their product and process research, development and marketing efforts.
Material testing and characterization: State-of-the-art polymer, composite and blend characterization techniques and equipment, a team of world-class analytical scientists, and the credibility provided by ISO-9001 certification, are all available to our clients from our strategic partner for analytical laboratory services. We provide our consulting expertise in working closely with you to ensure that the most appropriate tests are performed and that their results are interpreted and utilized as effectively as possible.
Technical project management: We provide two types of project management services. We identify academic and national laboratory resources that can help our clients, and work with our clients in planning and monitoring their external research and development partnership with such organizations. We also help our clients in forming and managing effective technical project teams within their own organizations.
Expert witnessing: We provide expert witnessing services in patent infringement and product liability lawsuits. Our clients can count on our in-depth appreciation of the complexities and subtleties of polymer structure, fabrication and performance, and on the outstanding analytical laboratory facilities and expertise that are available through one of our strategic partnership for materials testing and characterization, to serve their needs well in such adversarial situations.
