How does Exponent help you isolate variables and provide evidence-based root cause and failure analysis?
Every industry — from life sciences to oil and gas to consumer products to transportation and food and personal care products — utilizes polymers in their manufacturing process or final product. Polymers are a unique and complex class of materials. When they fail or underperform, it's critical that scientists and engineers who truly understand their formulation-structure-property relationships lead these types of root cause investigations and help clients develop an effective remediation plan.
Full lifecycle support for diverse industries.
No matter your industry, Exponent has the deep expertise to help you identify vulnerabilities at every point in your product or process lifecycle — whether during the early stage of development or addressing post-market issues.
State-of-the-art laboratory facilities.
Our state-of-the-art laboratories are located across the United States, Europe, and Asia, and our expert researchers conduct a wide range of stress tests and real-world application tests to learn help you objectively determine why a failure occurred and how to mitigate it.
For more than 50 years, our clients have relied on us to provide straightforward assessments, conduct scientifically sound tests, and tell them what they need to hear.
For 50+ years, we’ve thrived on solving unstructured problems that require bespoke solutions. Some of our services include:
