Product Development

Polymer materials (plastics, composites and elastomers) are found in a great number and variety of products that we have come to depend on. The safety, efficacy, cost effectiveness, manufacturability and sustainability of these products, however, depends on informed materials and product development decisions.


Our approach to new product development starts with an approach that puts user needs first and that is fully informed with respect to market constraints and opportunities, and that operates at the critical interface between materials and design. 

At GPC we help companies to avoid the pitfalls of product development by combining materials expertise with design, processing and testing experience from a diverse range of projects across many industries.
