TRI & CBA offer:

Contract Manufacturing Capabilities

  • Solvents and water-based systems: ability to dissolve inorganic and organic materials to form a homogenous liquid mixture and disperse in water to form a stable emulsion or suspension.
  • UV-Curable systems: characterized by their ability to cure or harden when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light, resulting in a fast and efficient curing process.
  • Dispersion systems: high-speed mixers to generate a high shear force that breaks up solid particles and distributes them in the liquid medium, typically a resin or solvent.

Contract & Customized Packaging

  • Liquid Filling: filling raw materials, liquid finished goods, and paint and coatings formulations into jugs, pails, drums, totes, or other customer-specific packaging.
  • Powder Filling: filling raw materials, dry finished goods, and paint and coatings formulations into pails, bags, drums, or other customer-specific packaging.
  • Customized Packaging: creating custom packaging solutions for raw materials or finished paint and coatings products to help the customer differentiate their products and appeal to specific customer needs.

Laboratory & Propriety Formulation

  • Fully equipped Quality Control (QC) with capabilities to ensure products meet the required specifications and quality standards. Ability to separate, identify, and quantify the individual components of samples and detect trace impurities in the raw materials and finished products.
  • Research and development of new products, analysis of new raw materials, complete evaluation of new formulations, and reformulating to improve existing products – all under strict proprietary control.
  • Technical support and quality control services to ensure consistent and reliable performance of customers’ products.
