It is designed to minimize contamination due to airborne contaminant and other contamination, while producing compounds in a clean, well-lit environment,” states Jim Figaniak, VP & GM of Americhem Engineered Compounds.  “The AEC Customer Design Center includes a pilot scale production to assist our customers with new product design and small lot qualification.”
