Research and Development Methodology

Research and development are key to the on-going improvements to existing resin systems and new product development. We extensively test and evaluate at lab scale. The customer is engaged in this process from the onset of the project. Once performance criteria are achieved, the focus is shifted to repeatability and stability.
The development cycle then proceeds to pilot plant scale, where the performance of the product is tested at conditions more representative of full plant scale.

The final stage is the repeatability at full plant scale. Final product approval is only issued once the product has run successfully in the production process, at the customer.

We believe that transparency and open communication are vital to a successful development process and therefore encourage customers to walk this exciting path with us.


As the world tries to navigate the path of responsibility to its people and the environment, Chemicals and Research is investing substantially into the Research of green resin systems.

We envisage that the legacy we leave behind as an organisation must be one that will inspire generations to come.
