In early 2014 Surfachem, a 2M Holdings Ltd company, established a development laboratory within the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre at the University of Huddersfield. Our goal to support and develop the technical expertise and market insight available to our customers.
Since 2014 Surfachem have helped customers solve problems, introduced numerous focus concepts and conducted multiple training seminars. All made possible by the technical development laboratory and the facilities within the 3M Buckley Innovation centre.
These concepts include…
High Oil Innovations
Ink Defender tattoo protection, a finalist for the 2016 Laura Marshall award for innovation
Skin care to hair care
Carbon black effects
….and many more.
Surfachem are delighted to announce the opening of a second laboratory within the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre, as we strive to continuously improve their capabilities.
The two laboratories will independently support Surfachem’s core markets; Personal care, Pharmaceuticals and the Household, Industrial & Institutional (HII) industries. This split strategy considers the clear and separate needs of these markets and allows Surfachem to commit to a vibrant and focussed development schedule.
To reinforce Surfachem and 2M’s ongoing commitment to support STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) students, the laboratories will continue to offer work placements to chemistry and science undergraduate students. A scheme that has been successfully running since 2015.
