Powder Processing

If you want support with powder processing you can trust us to provide the expertise to optimize your materials and processes.  Whether it’s in-house troubleshooting, quality issues in supply, formulation and product instability or simply continual innovation, we can help.

Quality consumer products have the look, feel and application that consumers want, these can be easily compromised when the starting materials aren’t fit for purpose.

Common troubleshooting we help to resolve include when:

  • Changing suppliers
  • Developing new products
  • Altering the manufacturing process and parameters
  • A sudden change in quality or quality control failures.

We are more than a test lab.  Where other providers offer tests, we go further and provide interpretation.  When the results of your tests reveal issues we will work closely with you to resolve them and get your products back to perfect.

Our expert consultants can also work with your team to help to improve cost effectiveness and product yields in your processes, fine tuning every element to maximum efficiency.

Products we work with include:

  • Hair care
  • Oral care
  • Skin care
  • Gels
  • Lotions
  • Pastes
  • Sprays
  • And more.

Our optimization services include:

  • Laser Diffraction and SEM for particle size, number, and shape
  • XRF and SEM to analyze chemical composition and purity
  • XRD to understand crystal structure
  • Analysis and optimization of zeta potential and rheology by changing pH levels and using additives
  • In-depth measurement of “downstream” intermediate products, e.g strength measurement of pressed granulate products and appraisal of powder coating thickness
  • Factorial Experimental Design (FED) to demonstrate strong correlations between powder and end-product properties
  • Design and validation of QC protocols.
