Intertek, the leading quality solutions provider to industries worldwide, will present new lab scale twin-screw compounding services for the polymer industry during K2013 in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Innovation in new product and materials development for next generation applications is essential to retain competitive edge and market share in today’s economy. To optimize efficiency and reduce development cost, companies implement materials characterization programs in the earliest phases of the development process in order to evaluate the likelihood of success and re-direct the development effort accordingly. Time-to-market can be reduced significantly when off-spec materials or products are adjusted or eliminated at the earliest stage of the development process.
Companies involved in polymer development and processing rely on obtaining this type of data from independent,
expert polymer compounding facilities.
Intertek’s Senior Vice President Dr. Andrew Swift said: “Our investment in twin-screw compounding capabilities is in response to increasing demand we have seen from the industry for independent advanced compounding services. Very few independent commercial test laboratories offer these services coupled with full chemical and materials characterization capability which plays such an important role in polymer development programs. Companies developing innovative polymer based products often prefer to seek external expert support in materials evaluation to save time and to preserve their own capital for core needs.”
Intertek engineers, chemists and regulatory experts will be available to discuss polymer analysis needs during this event.
