Reverse Engineering and Deformulation of Chemical Formulations

Chemical formulation deformation or reverse engineering offers particular information on the created product's composition and how the ingredients interact. Deformation aids in determining which chemicals, substances, or materials are used in the manufacturing process. Because complicated product formulations may comprise dozens of chemicals with various chemical properties, this can be as difficult as creating a new product.

Our analytical chemists use their industrial expertise in reverse engineering and deformation projects to help you better understand chemical formulations or products, as well as the behavior and interaction of constituent parts. We don't merely present a list of basic elements or a "menu," but instead take a strategic approach.

Reverse Engineering and Deformulation of Chemical Formulations

The information gathered can assist your firm in making judgments about product innovation, quality control, and product performance enhancement, as well as investigate patent infringement and invalidation. Alfa Chemistry's scientists provide strategic reverse engineering analysis programs to assist you with your formulation or product development. We use a number of technical methodologies in these programs to gain a better understanding of specific formulations or materials and how they perform.

Why Choose Alfa Chemistry?

We can supply information to help you better understand the formula's numerous constituents and ingredient concentrations, as well as how these ingredients and substances interact and operate. Chemical, beauty and personal care, cosmetics, food, medical equipment, electronics, construction, cleaning goods and wipes, packaging, and polymers companies benefit from our experience.

Coatings, polymer additives, perfumes, rheological agents, fungicides, pigments or dyes, preservatives, surface treatment agents, and surfactants are examples of chemical technologies that can impart functional effects to formulations.
