The Manufacturer's Manufacturer

The bulk of Polymeric System's business falls under two categories: tolling and private labeling for manufacturers. That's why PSI is known as the "manufacturers' manufacturer", committed to working closely with customers to develop, produce and package the products that best suit the customer's needs.

PSI can manufacture your formula, then package it to your specifications. PSI also offers a range of standard products ready to be packaged with your label.

Whatever your needs, our technical department works closely with customers to develop, produce and package high-quality products to match them.

Strict confidentiality agreements with our customers protect both product development and technological discussions.

 
Tolling
 

PSI can manufacture a broad range of formulations, particularly highly viscous materials requiring high-shear mixing and/or involving the dispersion of finely divided solids under vacuum or an inert atmosphere.

The offerings for specialized tolling manufacturing capabilities include:

  • Reactive polymeric processes
  • Custom compounding in a range of viscosities
  • High-shear blending
  • Custom-color matching
  • Product extrusion
  • Viscous product filling
  • Filtration equipment
  • Packaging options range from small tubes to industrial totes
  • Secondary packaging is available.
 
Private labeling
 

Polymeric Systems also has a line of products available for private labeling. We manufacture and package our products using the customer's label. Products available for private label include:

  • Silicones
  • One- and two-part urethanes
  • Polysulfides and polyethers
  • Epoxy liquids, pastes, putties and gels
  • Two-part, co-extruded epoxy putty sticks and side-by-side extruded tapes.
 
Manufacturing versatility
 

Ongoing investment in process technology enables PSI to manufacture special-purpose products with unique properties. We can manufacture batches from a one-gallon trial size to full-size production quantities. Our mixing equipment includes:

  • High-speed dispersion mixers
  • Planetary mixers
  • Stainless-steel jacketed pots for products requiring heating and/or cooling
  • Kneaders/extruders for mixing putties, mastics and heavy pastes
  • Specialized extruders for extruding mastics into precise profiles.
 
Testing versatility
 

PSI (together with Whitford, its parent company) has a remarkably extensive Quality Control and Development Laboratory. This is an area where PSI has been able to set itself apart from the competition. We have equipment capable of measuring:

  • Water content
  • Grind particle size
  • Viscosity
  • Extrusion rates
  • Thixotropy and work life
  • Tack-free time
  • Tensile strength
  • Shear adhesion
  • Peel adhesion
  • Hardness
  • Modulus
  • Accelerated weathering.

Additional lab capabilities range from complete computerized color-matching to contact-angle measurement. Among the lab equipment available for specialized testing are:

  • TA Instruments R200 Rheometer
  • Horiba Particle Size Analyzer
  • Gas Chromatograph
  • Dynisco Melt-Flow
  • Fourier Transfer Infrared
  • Spectrophotometer.
