Polymer & Plastic Deformulation Testing Lab

Polymer deformulation, the process of reverse engineering any polymer-based material to determine its chemical composition, allows businesses to better understand how their products will perform.

Avomeen’s chemists stay up-to-date with the most sophisticated polymer deformulation methods and instrumentation, and they have experience developing customized methods to meet the unique needs of our clients. Our team will help you gain insights into the chemical, thermal, and physical properties of your finished products and raw materials to help inform your manufacturing decisions.

Avomeen’s Polymer Deformulation Services

Avomeen’s expert staff includes highly-trained polymer chemists and technicians with decades of deformulation experience analyzing and characterizing polymers, adhesives, plastics, coatings, synthetics, composites, and specialty materials. This expertise can be highly valuable when your company needs to:

Research and Compare Competitive Products

We can reverse engineer a competitor’s product, identifying the polymer type, fillers, stabilizers, additives, and the quantities of each ingredient so you can improve upon their formulation.

Identify Batch to Batch Variations

Product consistency is essential, and Avomeen’s chemists can identify and resolve material variations between batches. We can also use polymer deformulation to ensure the consistent quality of manufacturing materials from your suppliers.

Develop a New Product

When you are trying to improve upon an existing product, make a product eco-friendly, or produce something entirely new, Avomeen can qualify the raw materials you plan to use. Through the polymer deformulation process, we can identify and recommend substitutes for potentially harmful substances and determine which polymer-based materials and additives will perform best for your purposes.

Receive Expert Testing Reports for Patent Infringement or Trade Secret Investigations

Polymer deformulation testing can be essential to proving that a competitor has infringed upon your patent or intellectual property. Our team includes expert witnesses who can clearly explain the complex results of our testing in a courtroom setting.

Perform Consumer Safety & Regulatory Testing

Avomeen provides consumer safety testing for contaminants and leachables in polymer products such as Bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates such as Di(2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) at the parts-per-million (PPM) and parts-per-billion (PPB) levels. We also offer comprehensive Extractable and Leachable Testing for Medical Device, Packaging, and Food & Beverage companies.
