Chemical Compatibility

Many polymer products and coatings are susceptible to various liquids and gasses they are exposed to during use. This can lead to rapid degradation or malfunctioning of the device. Is it worth taking the risk or do you want to know the compatibility of your product with its environment?

The chemical compatibility team at EAG can help your company select “first time right” sustainable materials in product design and development based on risk assessment, perform materials and product testing, and find the root cause of failure.
