Powder Rheology for Pharmaceutical Development

Pharmaceutical development is highly regulated, and for good reason. Potential new products must be rigorously tested to ensure their safety, purity, and performance are acceptable before coming to market. For topical creams, regulations uphold stability lifetime parameters and require identification of any impurities before products reach consumers.

Post-consumer Resin Legislation: What Polymer Developers Need to Know

From fresh steak to new phones, the goods we buy are usually wrapped in one thing: plastic. And plastic dominates how we pack and store products for good reason – it is lightweight, cost-efficient, and durable. Plastic helps us transport and receive goods in perfect condition, thus reducing food waste and preventing damaged goods from heading to landfills.

Polymer Properties for Compound Formulation: Determining Polymers That Lead to Successful Products

Overview The polymer used in a compound recipe is critical to compound processing behavior and final product performance, yet polymer characterization is an under-utilized technique in the rubber industry. Traditionally, the rheological behavior of the raw polymer is characterized using Mooney viscosity, which provides limited information. The Rubber Process Analyzer (RPA) can better characterize…
