InChem’s Capabilities Include Mixing, Blending, Reactions, Dispersions And Emulsions

InChem's chemical blending  services can be grouped into two main categories:
• Toll projects – Customer supplies all materials and packaging
• Custom products – InChem may provide some or all materials and packaging

These services are provided through the following versatile capabilities:

Chemical Mixing – Mixing solids and liquid – not a reaction but a solution, including compounding (adding a solid to a liquid to get a desired viscosity); making stable emulsions by adding compounds to water; with temperatures up to 170º C, from 50 gal to 5600 gal per vessel
High-Shear Mixing – Mixing for added stability due to particle size reduction, usually for adding stability to otherwise unstable emulsions; taking solids and dispersing them into a liquid carrier at a high rate of speed and tremendous mechanical energy from specialized mixers, homogenizers, or rotor stators
Chemical Blending – Mixing liquid and liquid – creating a new formulation without chemical reaction, such as making emulsion using high shear and surfactants
Chemical Reactions – Creating new molecular entities through chemical reactions of gaseous, liquid or solid raw materials; specialization in silane and silicone chemistry, hydrosilylation, and free radical polymerization
Dispersions – Suspending a solid in a liquid in a relatively stabilized form, through homogenization, high shear agitation, and milling
Emulsions – Similar to dispersions – includes a dispersion (solid and liquid) and water, with high shear mixing, including challenging emulsions comprised of silicon fluids, silica or titanium dioxide
Flaking – Melting a solid and reforming it into flakes to ease material handling
Particle Size Reduction – Use mechanical means to reduce particle size in some type of carrier liquid through homogenization, milling, rotor stator or similar means, yielding higher-performance products and increasing stability; full advanced particle size analyses from sub-micron levels, as well as colorimetry, gas chromatography, and other analytical methodologies
Plastic Processing – Washing, extrusion, pelletization – mechanical or chemical processes
