Avomeen’s expert staff includes Ph.D. polymer chemists with decades of deformulation experience with polymers, adhesives, plastics, coatings, synthetics, composites, and specialty materials. This expertise can be highly valuable when companies need to:
Avomeen can also provide Extractable and Leachable Testing for Medical Device, Food & Beverage, and Packaging companies. Safety testing for contaminants and leachables such as Bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates such as Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) can be performed at the parts-per-million (PPM) and parts-per-billion (PPB) levels.
Industry: Polymer Manufacture- Polymer Deformulation
Problem: Protecting a Valuable Trade Secret
Solution: An innovative manufacturer had recently developed a polymer-based product that it had introduced to the market with great success. Understanding the ability of competitors to reverse engineer products, this manufacturer contracted Avomeen to test its product using the full array of available analytical instrumentation to determine whether it was possible for their competitors to identify the key ingredients in their product. Avomeen’s scientists utilized their polymer deformulation expertise, along with techniques such as FT-IR, GC/MS, LC/MS, SEM, EXDA
