Analysis is an integral part and building block of solid product development. Before we develop anything, we first listen to our customers very carefully: what they want, what a product has to do, whether there are already products that should or can be used as a basis, where the priorities lie, for which markets or in which countries the products are to be sold ...
The customer survey results in initial boundary conditions for the development: exclusion or exclusive selection of certain raw materials, selection of formulation concepts, analysis of problem analogies or completely new development approaches.
After clarification of the boundary conditions, the development concept is defined. This applies not only to the actual formulation, which among other things checks the compatibility of the raw materials with each other, but also, for example, to questions about shelf life or compatibility with the immediate packaging components.
After that, the raw material research begins if standard formulations are not used or if special effects are to be achieved that can only be achieved with new raw materials. Occasionally, however, it is not even possible for customers to provide the necessary data. In this case, our research service becomes active, ensuring that the necessary information - in particular (eco-)toxicological, physical-chemical and occupational safety data - is determined professionally and misconceptions are prevented. A plausibility check of the data itself and of the data supplied by you is already included.
Only the results of the analysis, which are of course also documented, allow prototyping. The prototype is then examined again for the criteria collected at the beginning of the development process and the results are analyzed. Depending on the result, a further round of analysis and prototyping takes place.
