Specialists in Specialty Manufacturing

Experts in packaging, labeling and branding.

At Paradigm Labs, the specialty manufacturing techniques of toll blending are great strengths. (This process is also described as contract manufacturing or custom processing.) Whatever you call it, we are masters of the art, with a quarter-century of expertise behind us. For a customer’s fee or “toll,” we expertly blend whatever they need, even when processes are intensive and formulations complex.

The specialty chemical industry generates varied formulation/production demands. Blending specialty chemical products like paints, cleaners and personal-care products requires costly, dedicated equipment. Knowledge of engineering processes is also essential. We will do full toll blending where ingredients are sent to us with detailed instructions. Or customers may spec what they need and ask us to purchase components for them.

Paradigm also has deep expertise in product packaging, labeling, and branding. Our branding expertise supports our customers’ sales and marketing efforts, helping them build profitability through product recognition and buyer loyalty. In this and all other aspects of the work, we’re available for consulting that adds value to any project.

Paradigm’s new manufacturing capabilities.

As the needs of our clientele for water-based chemical specialties have grown and changed, Paradigm Labs has responded with significant new capabilities at both its manufacturing plants.

At Pine Grove, PA, three new reactors produce batches from 300 to 3,000 gallons, under full vacuum or under pressure. For other orders, the plant relies on eight atmospheric tanks with volumes from 500 to 3,300 gallons.

At St. Gabriel, LA, we now operate three atmospheric tanks with volumes of 300, 2,200 and 6,500 gallons, the largest one capable of blending a full tank-truck load.

Both locations use high-speed dispersion tanks which allow them to mix high viscosity materials and high solids up to 200,000 centipoise.

The “Labs” in our name is the real thing, too. We maintain sophisticated laboratory capabilities. Our gas chromatograph enables us to accurately determine volatile components in solvents. We perform Karl Fischer titrations to measure trace amounts of water in samples, manual titrations on the reagents that go into a formulation, viscometer tests for sample thickness, and pH testing.

It all adds up to a system that helps our customers choose the formulation that works best for them — and receive accurate, consistent product deliveries, batch after batch.
