It has been a month of investment in the laboratory as the business look to increase its capabilities in research and development.
Adding to an already impressive list of modern testing equipment, investment was made in a new Z-Blade mixer and Tensometer, which increases testing capability and doubles mixing capacity.
The automated Z-Blade mixer has increased mixing capacity which allows for increased innovation and material development into new silicone grades.
Senior Materials Technologist, David Harris said “The investment in new equipment is testament to the business focus on silicone innovation. The new mixing and testing equipment helps improve quality control whilst at the same time allowing the team to innovate and develop new materials for the market place.
Take a look at our laboratory video to see how we test and formulate all our silicone grades.
