Skills to help you innovate, grow and sustain your business

To innovate, industry needs to access expertise and knowledge that lies outside their normal range to push forward their products, processes and business. Rather than go to the expense and time of recruiting staff, companies will use the services of outside agencies, often consultants.

RAPRA has created a unique Network of Technical Support experts, providing practical, technical and research-based consultancy services to a whole range of UK businesses.

Our network of consultants are specialists in their chosen field, often having many years of experience in the polymer industry at grass roots level, and they bring all this knowledge and expertise to bear with our clients that engage with them.

The overall impact of employing the services of a consultant is that clients have access to deeper levels of expertise than would be feasible for them to retain in-house, and can employ only as much service from the outside consultant as and when needed. Consultancy services include:

  • Process & Product Development
  • Research & Development
  • Chemical Product Deformulation
  • Material Reverse Engineering
  • Competitor Product Benchmarking
  • Process Optimisation
  • Industrialisation & Ramp up
  • Reliability Improvement
  • Closed Loop Recycling of Rubber Waste
  • Troubleshooting Specific Problem Areas

RAPRA, the Rubber And Plastics Research Association, provides independent and impartial support for Consultancy Services to the widest range of industries, including: Aerospace & Defence, Automotive, Construction & Building Materials, Consumer Goods & Retail, Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Medical & Pharma, Toys and Games.

If you are looking to achieve any of these capabilities, RAPRA is open to all of your questions, needs and ideas. The simple way to start working with you is by submitting your enquiries here.
