Mission - Optimize by understanding

Growing requirements in the plastics industry demand a complete understanding of product requirements, material behaviour and characterization methods. With our experience we efficiently support your projects, test campaigns and failure analyses. We do this by closing the gaps between material/component suppliers, laboratories and medical OEM's.

This is what "optimize by understanding" stands for.

Service - our 4 pillars

Example:

You are a manufacturer of medical disposables or components. You have recognized that the trend is moving away from PVC or silicone towards safer or more sustainable alternatives such as TPEs. So you are looking for suitable materials and material suppliers. 

After initial discussions, you will receive different materials from three different suppliers. In order to select the right supplier and the right material, you should carefully check which supplier offers you the best service concept, which properties the new material should have, and which test methods you can use to check these properties. 

Otherwise, you run the risk of discovering very late in the project phase that the selected material does not work in the product after all. Ultimately, you would have to start from scratch.

Do you want to make sure that you select the right suppliers, material types and test strategies for your new developments or material changes? Then get us involved in your project and arrange a free first appointment with us now!


Example:

You are a plastics producer in the medical industry and are considering to make your portfolio more attractive to medical OEMs.

You want to be prepared for current and upcoming trends. Also you try to understand which material properties are of high importance for certain medical product groups. In addition, you would like to have your "medical concept" checked for competitiveness.

Would you like to improve your material portfolio or medical concept and be prepared for future trends? Then get us involved in your project and arrange a free first appointment with us now!

Example:

You are a manufacturer of medical devices or components for medical products and are planning to expand your portfolio. In order to launch a successful product you decide to benchmark the market. This analysis helps you to select the right polymers and to compare your own product with the competition.

You don't own a laboratory for polymer characterization and therefore rely on external laboratories. In the past, external laboratories have provided poor input on testing strategies and non-useful interpretations of analysis results. Expensive analyses ended up being completely worthless.

Are you looking for a laboratory that offers an effective test strategy, coordinates the whole execution of test methods and interprets complex analyses for you, in a way that is understandable and valuable for the product? Then make us your partner and arrange a free first appointment with us now!

Example:

You are a manufacturer of medical devices or components for medical products. All processes have been successfully validated. Your process windows are optimally set and raw materials are specified. Recently, you have been experiencing production problems that lead to expensive downtime. The restart of production can only be achieved by blocking the polymer batch and switching to another batch.

Your material supplier says he did not change anything and quality control did not report that materials were OOS (Out-of-Specification).

Would you like to find the root of the problem and develop the right analysis method for a new material specification? Then get us involved in your project and arrange a free first appointment now!
