How does Exponent help you improve the quality associated with polymer processing?
Products containing polymers, fiberglass, resins, emulsifiers, adhesives, and other compounded and composite materials require critical planning, evaluation, and controls throughout each step of the development, formulation, and manufacturing processes to ensure the highest quality and performance.
Support throughout the entire product lifecycle.
From material selection and incoming quality control (IQC), to the development of process controls and in-line test methods, we take a thorough approach to seek out vulnerabilities, estimate potential errors, and help clients plan and implement corrective actions.
Process and quality control evaluations.
We routinely support clients and their suppliers in their efforts to improve quality related to raw material selection, injection molding, bonding, curing, contamination control, reliability, and other aspects of polymer processing that affect the final finished product.
On-site inspections, process audits, and materials assessments.
To help you get objective answers and resolve quality issues, our teams provide site inspections, process audits, and material assessments in our state-of-the-art laboratories located across the United States, Europe, and Asia, providing extensive testing and consulting support tailored to your needs.
For 50+ years, we’ve thrived on solving unstructured problems that require bespoke solutions. Some of our services include:
• Design for Six Sigma (DFSS)
