Maryland Heights, MO (PRWEB) February 23, 2009
CAS-MI Laboratories announces the establishment of the CAS-MI Innovation Center, an incubator for new industrial and consumer formulated products, including paints, coatings, plastics, adhesives and more.
The scientists at this independent facility can take a new or existing idea and develop formulations all the way through production, creating bench-top batches for testing and scale-up. The Innovation Center staff may also assist with certifications, environmental standards, as well as help manage toll production. The purpose of the center is to help companies turn their ideas and dreams into real products in the marketplace.
"We can be a product development and testing partner," says Stephen C. Hall, Technical Director, CAS-MI Innovation Center. "Knowing that the lab is no substitute for real world conditions, we can also create different versions of a product for beta testing, application support and market research."
An example of CAS-MI's product development services is Idea Paint, http://www.ideapaint.com. The CAS-MI Innovation Center helped formulate this start-up's high-performance dry-erase coating, coordinated supply chain management, toll production and beta testing. The resulting product received top awards at NeoCon 2008, and is currently available through IdeaPaint.com and MDC Wallcoverings.
"The center's affiliation with CAS-MI Laboratories ensures our clients have access to the resources of a full service analytical laboratory," says G. Fred Willard, Ph.D., Vice President-Technology, CAS-MI Laboratories. "If problems occur, our clients can rely on CAS-MI to provide quick, reliable answers."
