Product Development

TRP Polymer Solutions works closely with our customers to solve their most challenging problems. This can be either the development of a new product or the improvement of an existing one. We will work with you to understand the critical features of any new polymer product development and help you to achieve your aims.

The two main stages of any new polymer product development that are critical to its success are selecting and formulating the correct material and the polymer product design itself. TRP Polymer Solutions has many years of experience and expertise in both areas.

Polymer material development

Choosing the right seal material

When it comes to developing any new polymer product, material development will often be the first stage of the process. For some applications, this can involve extensive testing to evaluate a new polymer material in environments that replicate service conditions.

For example, FFKM ‘O’ rings are designed using a rubber material that has a high thermal resistance, which makes them suitable for chemical applications. For other polymer product developments, prototype parts will be produced in the selected material for evaluation.

Polymer product design

O-ring Size

We are happy to advise and consult with engineers on all aspects of polymer product design, with the aim of improving performance, solving possible manufacturing issues, or re-engineering to offer cost savings or improve service life.

Where prototype production is required, we can offer very short lead times for single cavity moulds to prove polymer product designs before committing to larger capacity production tooling. Following the material and design process, prototype production allows evaluation of both material and part performance.
