Development and laboratories

Our research laboratories have at their disposal many state-of-the-art measuring devices operated by experienced laboratory assistants.
This enables us to:

  • ensure the constant quality of all purchased raw materials
  • analyse the properties and composition of competitive samples of granulates and profiles
  • suggest complete formulas for specific technologies and applications
  • provide complete customer service on the granulates we supply
