The Plantic Research and Development laboratory has pilot scale equipment for small scale manufacture and development of Plantic sheet and resin. Our laboratory has equipment which allows for rapid development and scale-up of new grades for rigid packaging and flexible product.
The Research & Development centre has a fully equipped laboratory complete with the necessary wet chemistry apparatus, thermal, mechanical and rheological analytical equipment. The centre is further strengthened by a talented pool of scientists, engineers and technicians.
Plantic is regulary conducting research programs with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Monash University, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Swinburne University of Technology and University of QLD.
Plantic also has strong links with industry through collaborative and joint development agreements. We have already announced several joint development, marketing or distribution partnerships with domestic and international companies. Other agreements of various types have been signed with multinational companies and will be announced in due course. These alliances with large research institutions and organisations give Plantic access to a broad range of processing and characterisation facilities, and speed the development of new products.
Further information on specific R&D projects will be posted regularly, so please check back and see how Plantic is changing the nature of plastics.
