Surfachem expands into second lab

Share This Post

Surfachem, a 2M Holdings Ltd company, which established a development laboratory at the 3M BIC 2014, has opened a second laboratory on Innovation Avenue as they strive to continuously improve their capabilities.

Since 2014, they have helped customers solve problems, introduced numerous focus concepts and conducted multiple training seminars. All made possible by the technical development laboratory and the facilities within the 3M BIC.

These concepts include…

  • High Oil Innovations
  • Ink Defender tattoo protection, a finalist for the 2016 Laura Marshall award for innovation
  • Instant effects
  • Skin care to hair care
  • Carbon black effects

The two laboratories will independently support Surfachem’s core markets; Personal care, Pharmaceuticals and the Household, Industrial & Institutional (HII) industries. This split strategy considers the clear and separate needs of these markets and allows Surfachem to commit to a vibrant and focussed development schedule.

To reinforce Surfachem and 2M’s ongoing commitment to support STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) students, the laboratories will continue to offer work placements to chemistry and science undergraduate students. A scheme that has been successfully running since 2015.
