Research and Development

 

Ingenia offers innovative solutions with specialized, performance products to the plastics industry. Our passion for technical innovation and creative, cost-effective solutions begins in our world-class R&D laboratories. Scientists and engineers are focused on innovation and invention. Company-wide, we are developing revolutionary new products, processes and technologies that improve the plastics that are essential to our quality of life.

Our R&D Centers throughout the world house well qualified engineers and sophisticated equipment that achieves these superior results We can formulate custom compounds, provide innovative product solutions that are inspired by customer vision and needs, and perform trials and tests which simulate many manufacturing environments. Our product development approach is a multidisciplinary effort involving the careful formulation of the chemical composition, sourcing of the right raw materials, utilizing the right manufacturing techniques, testing and evaluating the results, and developing the applications.

In our laboratories, materials are evaluated in their molten phase for rheological, thermodynamic and processability properties; in their solid phase, they are evaluated for mechanical, crystallization and stability properties. Our products are utilized in demanding applications that necessitate good processability, excellent mechanical properties and long term chemical, heat and light stability of the final product.

Our high-performance plastic masterbatches, compounds, and blends have rapidly become the materials of choice for a constantly growing array of product applications. These range from flexible packaging and non-durables to rigid and durable applications in diverse industries and conversion processes, including blown-film and cast-film extrusion; extrusion coating and laminations; BOPP, fibers, pipe and profile extrusion; wire and cable; injection, rotational and blow molding; and thermoforming.

Our laboratories are located in:

  • Houston, Texas, USA
  • Brantford, Ontario, Canada
  • Calgary, Alberta, Canada
  • Al Jubail, Eastern Province, Saudi Arabia.
