Helping You Reach Your Full Potential!

Product innovation and development are part-and-parcel for hegemony in the field. We find it important to have strong development cycles for growth in product design, research and development (PDR&D) is a key determinant of their competitiveness, as PDR&D drives commercialization, export opportunities and growth.

The PDR&D process is a cycle of continuous improvement over time with iterative feedback and recurring input from development team members as well as executives, sales and marketing groups, and production teams. The process involves four stages: product idea generation; product selection; product development. With a strong interdisciplinary background we are able to provide development services including, but not limited to: failure analysis, product scale-up, formulation investigation, process improvements, and protocol development.

Product Development Roadmap

We like to help you gain the most of our product development experience with us. The roadmap is a general outline on how we like to help you achieve your goal.

Product Idea Generation
Analyze customer needs and collect competitive intelligence in all markets
Product Selection
Assess and manage risk, market requirements, and return on investment
Product Analysis
Allocate resources and carry out design and engineering trials
Position product competitively and manage life cycle through customer feedback

Product Development Project Portfolio

  • Water-borne automotive coatings

    New innovative approach to global deployment of automotive coating.

  • Anti-mold coatings

    Tackling issues of black-mold and various biological health hazards with a coating/paint solution that is tuned for any application use machine learning.

  • New wastewater treatment technology

    Coated fabric textile that assist in a cost-effective and environmentally friendly oil-water separation apparatus.

  • Green plasticizer scale-up

    Plasticizers are used to increase the flexibility and workability of relatively rigid polymers such as poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC). For decades, di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP and sometimes termed as dioctyl phthalate (DOP)) was the most common plasticizer used in PVC formulations. However, DEHP has been shown to have negative health effects, such as being an endocrine disruptor. Recently, DEHP has been banned for use in children’s toys and phthalate alternatives are rapidly being offered. We have been developing succinate-based esters that biodegrade to non-toxic metabolites after being discarded while also performing as well or better than DEHP in blend formulations. This project serves to employ sustainable building blocks for the synthesis of so-called green plasticizers that biodegrade acceptably and perform mechanically well. The industrial partner will benefit by the demonstration of the scale-up of a green plasticizer as well as the economic assessment of such a material. They will be able to take advantage of the results from the internship to become an early adopter of the green plasticizer in their various applications.

  • Transportation thermoplastics

    Flexible paneling and strapping that has good flexure durability while attaining excellent smoke suppressant and flame retardant properties.

We would love to collaborate with you!
