Innovating together, we grow side by side!
At Pino Pine Laboratories our partners will be able to find highly specialized Technicians with know-how in the field of Derivatives of Gum Rosin, acquired over more than two decades.
Pino Pine currently has laboratories for Quality Control, Dispersions, Analytical and Research and Development (R & D).
The Analytical Laboratory performs highly precise chemical analysis, possessing a highly qualified technical staff and several leading technologies to meet the needs of our customers. Among the various functions assigned to it are the support to the R & D Laboratory in the development of new products and the essential collaboration with the Laboratory of Quality Control, in the control of the incoming raw materials, products in the course of manufacture and finished products, providing detailed and accurate information about our resins.
An important aspect of this laboratory is the execution of physicochemical analysis upon request. In order to do this, it has advanced technologies, in which we highlight:
- Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC);
- Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) hyphenated with Mass detector (MS);
- Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) equipped with Headspace and also a Pyrolyzer;
- High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) with a DAD detector;
- Triple Detection Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC);
- Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR);
- EDS Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM-EDS);
- Flash-Point (Pensky-Martens).
In the R & D and Dispersions Laboratories Pino Pine has a team that, together with our partners, seeks to develop new products, provide technical support, present more advantageous solutions and establish relationships of trust and knowledge sharing, allowing us to grow together.
In the R & D Laboratory, there is a pilot unit, which has proved to be fundamental, namely in the development of new products.
This is similar to the factory unit but in a reduced scale, which allows us to do controlled scale-up, minimizing the inherent variables to a process of this nature.
Our Quality Control Laboratory, as a result of the demanding control performed throughout the entire manufacturing process, is synonymous of guarantee and commitment that the product delivered to our partners is of excellence and meets all the agreed parameters, thus ensuring their satisfaction.
