  Intertek Presents New Twin-Screw Plastic Compounding Services During K2013

Business Wire

STUTTGART, Germany -- October 10, 2013

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.
