Our Services

Test Design

choose the most efficient rubber, plastics testing techniques to answer the questions our clients ask about their polymer products.

Material Analysis

characterise polymer materials to identify the generic type, bulk composition, processing quality, compliance to specification and batch to batch variation.

Property Assessment & QA/QC

evaluate product properties in terms of mechanical performance, degradation, stress cracking, contamination, weathering, shelf-life, etc.

find the root cause of polymer product failure and make suggestions to prevent the failure from re-occurrence in the future.

Process Improvement

work with client to provide assistance on trouble-shooting and new development of manufacturing process, e.g. injection moulding and extrusion of plastic part.

Product Development

help clients develop polymer products by means of selection of the suitable materials, design assessment and sourcing raw materials.

Technical Advice

provide hourly based consulting services on polymer issues from clients.

Information Service

search for particular polymer information based on polymer materials database, publications and web-based literatures.

Technical Representative

coordinate with polymer suppliers, material compounders, product manufacturers and end users on behalf of clients to deal with technical issues.
