We were happy with the service provided to us by the Provider and by RAPRA.  They were able to help us, and we went ahead with the testing of the butyl material. They were prompt, and the test results were useful to us

The feedback I had was prompt and useful, the main benefit in this instance was that you enabled me to have access to the right technical expert without me having to chase around the FSA

RAPRA was indeed very helpful in putting me in touch with a provider who is now carrying out the testing I originally enquired about. I received a call from them the day following my enquiry and it was clear that this provider were both experienced and knowledgeable about testing rubber compounds for chemical compatibility.

Here at our organisation, we take the reliability of our products seriously and will always use experts in their field to improve our quality. I thank you for putting us in touch with one of them.

We would like to thank you for making the contact between ourselves and the Provider. My contact has been extremely helpful.  They have been able to analyze the product that we sent to them and hopefully this week there will be a major step forward in this project, when they deliver samples to us for testing. Without RAPRA, this project would have taken much longer to start, if at all, as we had been looking for this type of service for some time.
