R&D and Laboratory

Always mixing innovation and technology

R&D staff can do characterization analysis of compounds about rheological, mechanical, physical, electrical, thermal and aging characteristics.

SIGEA always pursues the highest quality to constantly improve its compounds and to formulate new ones based on the needs of our customers.
