We improve your probability of project success

The plastic evaluation is crucial for a plastic changeover or new product development. If the wrong choice is made or the material issue is tackled too late, immense costs and delays can occur. The right choice of plastic is essential for safety and performance. Our Gradical experts can help you make the right material decision to reduce project lead times and costs.
