Technical Services

Non Biased resin selection is critical in today’s marketplace.  To support a non biased approach, strong relationships with suppliers remains paramount to ensure a processors growth and profitability.  Creating long term relationships with suppliers that are integrated with authorized distribution partners is of great importance.

Our technical services team has the ability to provide un-biased material selection advice on commercially available solutions and even for solutions that have yet to be imagined.    With a full understanding of requirements (Environmental, Chemical Exposure, Improved co-efficient of friction, UV Resistance, Cost Savings, etc…) our team will provide options and insight on how to meet the demands of the application while implementing them into your process.

AMCO has the ability to be actively involved in every phase from application inception to production.     As one of the newest members of the Ravago family we have expanded production and testing capabilities and will continue to maintain our long standing focus on solving customers’ problems through innovative technologies and creative supply solutions.  Our problem solving capability revolves upon utilization of our vast compounding, recycling, blending, and distribution capabilities.
