The PTI Material Development Group provides customized processing and material evaluation services to customers engaged in the development of new polymeric packaging materials.
Our production laboratory is outfitted with specialized equipment to simulate production in a laboratory setting. For example, we offer lab scale, unit cavity injection molding equipment to convert your material into test samples, plaques, or preforms.
For bottle evaluation programs, we blow mold at production rates using our state-of-the-art equipment so that you know how your material will perform. Resin, preform and bottle tests can be selected from PTI's extensive list of analytical services. Customized test protocols can also be developed to quantify unique performance attributes of your material.
