Life Cycle Analysis and Lifetime Optimization


How will wear and tear, wind and weather affect my product? Is it suitable for a recycling process by design and materials? Will my component endure and perform properly over ten years and more? These are critical questions frequently asked by product developers. We investigate the life cycle of your product, we help estimating the lifetime and, if desired, we extend it through material optimization.

The Polymerics team has an extensive infrastructure available to handle these tasks.
