Product Application Laboratories

The demands of today’s business environment leave our customers with fewer resources to develop innovative products.  By staffing state-of-the-art application laboratories for both powder and liquid coating applications, Estron introduces products to the market that have been thoroughly screened, thereby offering our customers a higher likelihood of commercial success and helping to shorten the testing process.  Product concepts are driven by both market needs directed by our commercial group and by Research and Development chemists, all of whom have years of real-world experience in their respective fields.  These innovative concepts are developed into commercially-viable Beta-stage products prior to market launch.  This degree of product development allows our customers to fast track cutting-edge technology managed by experts uniquely suited to facilitate the process.

Both the powder and liquid application laboratories are fully capable of screening new technology, formulating and producing commercially-relevant starting point formulations, as well as providing individualized support to develop customer-specific formulations utilizing Estron’s unique product line, often under non-disclosure agreements.  In the event of quality problems at a customer location, Estron’s application staff is ready to assist in identifying the root cause of the problem regardless of the source.
