Although the laboratory and its staff has a wealth of technical experience and a remarkably comprehensive and increasing array of analytical techniques that can be brought to bear in support of customer product and process problems, measurements and contract Research & Development, it is not possible to cover every conceivable support requirement without external support.
LPD has been collaborating with select specific organisations and consultants to extend our capabilities and breadth of knowledge. These laboratories have been chosen for their staff industrial experience, applications and approach to customers. They similarly understand the specific goals of support work and in addition are committed to quality and confidentiality as a priority.
These expanded capabilities include:-
- Plastics / polymers and rubbers.
- Polymer failure and Environmental degradation.
- Organic coatings technology.
- Pharmaceutical purity analysis.
- Metallurgical investigation and metallurgy.
- Technical consultancy.
- Expert witnessing.
