Your Partner in Innovation

The nature of research and innovation means that it's only possible for us to stock most of the materials you need.

To provide all of the materials you need for science and innovation we also offer customized products to your specifications via our expert Technical Solutions team.

Whether you simply need a tighter tolerance on a standard product or a multiyear project where we will collaborate with you to develop new materials, new processing and deliver groundbreaking products, we can accommodate your requirements.

We appreciate that our customers' applications, processes and demands vary, and although our standard product may be perfect for one application, for another a higher purity or different dimension requirement, a bespoke solution is needed.

This is no problem for us, and it can start with a simple conversation. The sooner we discuss your requirements, the sooner you can get the best material for your application.  

Even if you feel that a standard product will work for your research phase it’s still worth reaching out to us to discuss production demands. We can discuss the suitability of that product for increased volumes and start helping you budget for production.
