Deformulation

National Polymer is a leader in the field of deformulation, particularly the deformulation of polymeric materials. At its core, deformulation involves customized extractions and the use of specialized instrumental techniques to identify and quantify the structure of a material and the components of a compound. Polymer structure and morphology are important but so are the components of a formula. Components often include polymers, oligomers, initiators, catalysts, plasticizers, fillers, stabilizers, lubricants, antioxidants, flame retardants, etc.

For over 15 years, National Polymer has been providing deformulation services to a wide array of industries across the globe. Our senior level team of PhD and Master Degreed chemists have performed deformulations coupled with reformulations on hundreds of products and have the skills and tools to successfully deformulate even the most difficult materials. Although it is not always practical to develop a “cookbook recipe” from a deformulation, in most cases our analysis identifies both major and minor components. We deploy the expertise of our chemists to deformulate any polymer based product including adhesives, coatings, sealants and other polymeric systems.

The next step in the process is equally important. This step is to provide product formulation and testing to ensure that the reformulated product meets or exceeds the performance characteristics of your competitors.

Our unique value is in the way we utilize deformulatory information in the support a reformulation effort. In fact, we excel in reformulation. As a formulatory laboratory, we have extensive experience in the selection of the appropriate techniques needed to reverse engineer any polymer, with an eye on the final product. Our experience translates to exceptional value for our customers.

Finally, we can also assist with the manufacturing of your product at any volumes you require.

Deformulation

Deformulation is a branch of analytical chemistry used specifically to identify individual components of a compound, or the structural features of a molecule. Regarding polymeric materials, it is a useful tool in determining the critical components or the compositional and structural features of polymeric products such as adhesives and sealants, paints and coatings, thermoplastic materials, oligomers and monomers. At national polymer, we use it often for the purpose of competitive analysis, but we do not stop there, we always couple Deformulation with Reformulation. This enables us to deliver more value to our clients than a typical Deformulation Laboratory. We not only provide a thorough Deformulation Report, but we also create a working prototype.
