Applications - Contract Manufacturing Services

ZEON’s contract manufacturing services and capabilities are designed to assist you from the pilot scale evaluation stage through full-scale production.

Our Hattiesburg, MS plant is optimized for solution polymerized products.

The plant is supported by a pilot scale unit that mirrors the polymerization equipment and capabilities of the full-scale production lines. Pilot scale equipment ranges from < 1 gallon in size up to 10 gallons with post-reaction material handling using steam coagulation. The pilot plant is located at the Hattiesburg, MS plant-site.

Technical and production staff at ZEON are available to assist from assessment of the most suitable process for production of your product, to pilot-scale evaluation, and thru full-scale production.

In addition to manufacturing, ZEON’s plants are supported by our Louisville, KY-based Technical Service, Corporate Engineering and Logistics staff.

ZEON's facilities are ISO 9001 certified.
