What is a custom material processing?

When a company has a new product they want to produce on a larger scale but do not have the ability to do so in-house they contract out the manufacturing to another company. To be able to have a full scale production in house can take a lot of money and a lot of space. For them to minimize the cost they chose to seek out a company with state-of-the-art equipment, large manufacturing space, or full staff of technicians to produce their product.

We specialize in reducing particles down to sub-micron levels in a liquid medium or slurry. Our staff of chemists and technicians has more than 25 years of experience in manufacturing specialty products for other companies.
