3M Custom Compounding Services

Polymer compounding services offer customization for unique applications

  • Sometimes standard polymer formulations don’t fit the requirements of your unique application. Through our custom compounding facilities, you have the ability to create unique formulations with specific properties that are not inherent to the base polymer. Enhancements can range from making the base polymer easy to extrude to functional benefits such as weight reduction or improved dimensional stability.

    When you use our custom polymer compounding services, you'll get fast turnaround on a broad range of made-to-order polymer compounds, from prototypes and small batches to production-scale quantities. Contact us to learn how we can help expand your options, speed your product to market – and make your vision a reality.

  • Custom thermoplastic compounds
    Custom Thermoplastic Compounding

    Through our full-service, in-house thermoplastic compounding facilities, you have the ability to create unique, specialized polymer formulations. Using a wide variety of base resins, we can produce custom compounded products ranging from micropellets to antistatic plastics and conductive polymers. We can also produce thermoplastic compounds pre-formulated with any of 3M’s advanced polymer additive technologies, including fire retardant and density reducing additives.
