Paint Deformulation



Avomeen’s expert scientific staff includes Ph.D. formulation chemists with decades of product development & deformulation experience with paints, varnishes and stripping agents.  Reverse engineering paint products can be particularly challenging due to many products containing a large number of ingredients within their formulation, many of them at low levels. Isolating all of the resins, solvents, pigments, and additives with these products take highly tuned analytical instrumentation and advanced separation techniques.

Avomeen’s analytical chemistry labs have the ability to test a broad range of sample types by specialized Gas and Liquid Chromatography methods, along with a wide variety of Spectroscopic (MS, IR) and Microscopic (SEM, EDXA, Raman, Polarized) techniques. This expertise can be highly valuable when companies need to:

  • Perform VOC analyses on new formulations
  • Research and compare competitive products
  • Identify specialty active ingredients and trace contaminants
  • Develop new products, including eco-friendly product formulation
  • Verify marketing claims
  • Check if competitors are infringing on your companies patents

Avomeen can also provide custom Materials Identification & Quality Control services. We offer routine and custom physical testing of thermal and mechanical properties. Our techniques include Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Energy-Dispersive X-Ray Analysis(EDXA), Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), and Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA).
