ECL's three-stage new product development process is rooted in data-driven experimentation and life cycle testing.
It begins in our analytical research lab, where proposed greases, coatings, and dispersions are formulated to meet customer performance requirements. Then our pilot production lab, matched to production geometry and heating characteristics, ensures batch production does not change the performance characteristics of the sample. Finally, when required, our validation lab pre-tests the new formulation on customers' parts, using customer-designed test rigs to evaluate mechanical performance. ECL's computer-controlled, walk-in environmental chamber replicates the part's real world operating environment.
If our formulation doesn't pass the tests, the process starts again in the analytical lab, so that our customers do not have to spend time and resources testing multiple sample formulations.
