helps manufacturing companies develop
practical solutions to their technical and manufacturing problems.
We work primarily with companies utilising plastics, elastomers
and other polymers to manufacture finished products for commercial,
industrial and military markets and where our broad experience
in all phases of Manufacturing Operations, R&D, Product and
Process Development, Market Development and General Management
can be most valuable to our clients.

We are soft-polymer specialists
with a major focus on two primary areas of expertise.
One area is in liquid silicone rubber
(LSR) and liquid injection molding (LIM) of silicone
rubber. It is based on many years of successful involvement with
both technical and business issues of liquid silicone materials,
liquid silicone equipment and tooling, manufacturing start-up
and operations, and application development for liquid silicones.
second and growing area of focus is on the formulation,
processing and design of manufacturing systems for soft-polymer
materials and elastomer gels. We have extensive
experience in the formulation and processing of elastomeric gels
including the design and manufacture of turn-key molding systems
for hot melt soft polymer materials and
gels as well as thermoset
reactive polyurethane gels.
In all of these areas, we offer unbiased
equipment, tooling,or material selection. We have
assisted many clients in developing soft polymer materials, products
and processes based on vinyl polymers, TPE’s, and cast polyurethane
gels. These systems range from Ultra
Soft (Shore A “000”) , Soft (Shore A “00”)
up to more conventional 20-30 Shore A materials. We
have also developed processing systems for thin-sheet
hot-melt casting, hot-melt coating and hot-melt open-pour casting/molding
as well as reactive processing/pouring
of urethane gels. We also provide turnaround
start-up assistance on the factory floor, urgent
resolution of scrap or yield problems, or help
in product-, process-, or manufacturing- development programs.
Our disciplined approach to problem
solving is based on seasoned,
practical perspectives. It can quickly generate
to problems, improving overall performance and bottom-line
