Our innovation know-how 

Our innovation know-how

Our extensive innovation process knowledge can help you:

  • Gain first-to-market advantage for inks, paints and other coatings with novel functionality and new intellectual property and licensing opportunities.
  • Develop new products or to reformulate and optimise with more cost-effective or fewer ingredients.
  • Reduce or eliminate materials and meet regulatory standards, reformulate to include eco-friendly, sustainable ingredients and reformulate for multi-functionality.
  • Increase supply chain optimisation and robustness, while minimising raw material palette globally.
  • Experiment in a neutral and flexible testing ground where material suppliers and formulators can come together to generate data they can trust.
