Leading Chemical
Lab Services

As a custom chemical manufacturing company, Seatex boasts a fully outfitted laboratory where our skilled chemists can create, enhance and optimize your product all the way from the lab to full commercialization. Our facilities are equipped to get your product to the market.

So whether you have a complete formulation that you need tested or simply a rough idea of what you need, Seatex can help get your product to market so that it is safe, sustainable, and cost-effective.

R&D Stage

If your formulation is at the research and development stage, Seatex can add value by:

  • Minimizing your financial exposure on the journey from concept to market 
  • Shortening the product development timeline by finding the right solutions and ruling out dead-ends
  • Reducing costs of material selection, feasibility studies, and raw materials inputs
  • Meeting increasingly complicated regulatory requirements
  • Offering visibility on a substance’s suitability for specific applications
  • Enhancing the production process so you can expand your business
  • Delivering high-touch customer service, day or night

Laboratory Scale Stage

In what’s also known as “bench scale” services, at the lab scale stage our technicians analyze your pilot batch or synthesize it themselves for chemical and physical evaluation. The insights we gain can help you develop or improve your existing ones.

Testing is a major component of our services at this stage. Our lab testing equipment includes:

  • Karl Fischer autotitrator for water
  • Acid-base titrator
  • Fann 35A rheometer for viscosity 
  • OFI lubricity meter
  • Roller oven for effects of temperature on drilling fluid
  • High pressure-high temperature (HPHT) and API low pressure filter presses for filtration
  • Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) for absorption
  • Flash point tester
  • Inductively coupled plasma (ICP) analysis
  • Gas chromatography (GC) and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)

and more. 

Scale-Up Stage

At this crucial stage of your chemical’s journey, we’ll determine if your formulation is viable on a larger scale. Viability rests on not only the ability to manufacture the product efficiently and inexpensively, but safely. This may mean altering the synthesis route, which means you’ll need to lean on the experience of a trusted partner like Seatex.

While proving out your product’s ability to move from a beaker to a railcar, our lab experts prove invaluable by:

  • Identifying process design issues and recommending improvements
  • Maximizing and optimizing yield
  • Avoiding/removing impurities
  • Minimizing waste 
  • Evaluating process safety 
  • Gauging necessary equipment specifications
  • Determining appropriate transfer techniques for reagents

Our team’s efficiency and skill mean your company can quickly add products to your portfolio, knowing they’ve been thoroughly proven out. And our ability to innovate and optimize your process can mean significant savings and provide peace of mind regarding your investment in a new formulation.
