RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

DEDICATION TO RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT OF NEW RAW MATERIALS

Poliversal has an innovative laboratory, where a research team works in close coordination with the best universities and research centres.

The research and development of new products and applications of concentrated additives represents a key priority at Poliversal. Around 3% of our annual turnover is invested in such activities.

To develop any solution, Poliversal is commited to establish a relationship of true partnership with the client. That begins with finding out what plastic material is the most appropriate in each situation before monitoring the production process,  and only ends with standardization of the chosen part.

Poliversal is a company focused on the creation of new products able to exceed the client expectations. In order to accomplish this goal, Poliversal expanded its production capacity , invested in the most advanced technology and spread its range of innovative raw materials. The company also relies on its fully equipped laboratory, where a highly specialized research team is daily at work in close collaboration with universities and research teams.

BUSINESS

In a world of constant evolution, plastics are fundamental to so many processes.

In a world of constant evolution, plastics are fundamental to so many processes.

Without plastics, we would not be able to simply and effectively package all of the products we consume on a daily basis. We would have no safe and increasingly economical automobiles. There would be no energetically efficient buildings capable of providing comfort and security and we would not have either the computers or all the other electronic systems that facilitate our lives. In sport, in medicine and in many other areas, no advance would have proven possible without plastics.

This great diversity in applications requires equally great adaptation and specialist tailoring of the plastics deployed in each utilization.

Poliversal is the result of half a century of experience in the plastics market and combining the knowledge held by Plasteme in the distribution of raw materials to the plastics industry and the production of tailored solutions, complementary to that distribution. This experience emerges out of an organization distinguished by its levels of innovation, product quality and the excellence of the services provided.

Poliversal is a Portuguese owned and financially very balanced company first launched to respond to the needs of its distribution clients. They were seeking out exact colours, made to measure for each application, supplied in small numbers, adjusted to production output levels and delivered swiftly in order to ensure production continuity.

Nowadays, Poliversal (and Plasteme, which continues to operate as a limited entity) is the exclusive distributor in Portugal and in other countries of some of the most renowned petrochemical polymers and that have been the source of longstanding and lasting relationships leveraged by mutual trust. Above all, however, Poliversal adds value to these polymers through its development and manufacture of additive concentrates (masterbatches) and compounds, which are sold worldwide.

Poliversal capitalizes on its over 50 years of experience, acting in the marketplace on different and complementary scales and remaining able to satisfy a broad range of needs in terms of plastic products.

In the pigment distribution sector, Poliversal aims to become, in the short term, an international player as it deploys the capacity to be present in the key European markets and supply large volumes at highly competitive prices.

In the plastic distribution sector, Poliversal is equipped to provide a broad range of products, which may be produced in small quantities and always to very high-quality standards. However, it is through the production of masterbatches and composites, in small production-runs, that Poliversal provides the greatest benefits to its clients. They result not only from Poliversal’s capital of experience and state-of-the-art technology but also, thanks to the quality of the company’s research department, from competitive and innovative solutions applied in the form of tailor-made plastic products.

Poliversal stands out for the high quality of its products, service excellence and integrated logistics chain: characteristics enabling the company to compete in the most demanding world markets. In order to survive and prosper, Poliversal operates constantly based upon the company’s core objective – client satisfaction –, establishing bonds based on values such as stability and trust that result in financial stability and in partnerships and client loyalty that, in some cases, stretch back as long as 45 years.
