Shropshire-based materials testing laboratory, Gammadot Rheology, has announced it has agreed to work with not-for-profit research organisation, RAPRA Limited, as a ‘preferred service provider’.
RAPRA offers impartial and independent support to members and non-members involved in all kinds of polymer-related R&D from a range of service providers it recommends on a project-by-project basis.
Steve Shaw, RAPRA Executive Director, commented: "We are extremely pleased to be working with Gammadot Rheology, experts in this area where scientific testing and measurement of 'real' materials are merged with highly specialised software modelling tools."
He added: "These both enable the designer to reliably predict the behaviour of a material during processing to maximise quality and performance of a product as a result of optimal manufacturing."
Gammadot Rheology offers a range of testing services based on over two decades of providing rheology and materials characterisation support to the plastics and rubber industries.
Mark Edwards, Gammadot's Principal, said of the agreement: "Gammadot is looking forward to working alongside RAPRA and providing the membership and other clients with fast, accurate solutions to all their Rheology and material characterisation needs.”
