By Mary Page Bailey |

The Coatings and Composites business of Lonza Group (Basel, Switzerland; www.lonza.com) announced that it is opening its plastics laboratory at the Lonza Innovation and Technology Center located in Alpharetta, Ga.

This new laboratory enables Lonza to deepen its understanding of the evolving raw materials and additives used in plastics applications in order to help customers innovate. Lonza now has the ability to characterize physical, thermal and other properties of plastics and to determine how the use of additives and antimicrobials enhances performance and processing methods. The laboratory adds an additional layer to Lonza’s technical expertise and facilitates its ability to develop new value-added products and formulations for introduction to the plastic additives market.

“This new lab expands our ability to bring to market new solutions that will meet our customers’ demands for durable and sustainable products,” said David Doles, Business Unit Head-Materials Performance and Protection for Lonza.

The modern laboratory is an addition to Lonza’s Innovation and Technology Center, which also offers the capabilities to study microbial control, analytical chemistry, weathering, and other properties of plastics. The Alpharetta location is also home to Lonza’s Marine Paint & Coatings, Water Treatment and Research & Technical teams.
