Deformulation of competing products in the laboratory

Your needs : deformulation of competing products as part of product development or optimization

What is a deformulation?

Deformulation is an analytical breakdown process that aims to separate, identify and quantify the substances that make up a formulation. For this purpose, deformulation calls for many different chemical analysis.

This analytical application can be adapted to all types of products, supports, formulas: metallic alloys, varnishes, aqueous solutions, plastics, composites, creams…

Why distort a competing product?

The performance of a product or material being directly linked to its composition, chemical deformulation is an integral part of the control of your product and its behavior.

Moreover, the deformulation of competing products can be an interesting step in the context of optimization or development of new products. 

The deformulation of competing products will also allow you to orientate your decision making and to improve your positioning in your field of expertise.

FILAB supports you in deformulation analysis of competing products

Thanks to its experience and its state-of-the-art analytical facilities (2100m² analytical laboratory), FILAB laboratory can assist you in your most complex deformulation analysis needs, whatever the nature of your sample: aqueous solution, powder, polymer, ceramic, metallic material…
