The Israel Plastics and Rubber Center (IPRC) is an independent institute for applied polymer research and development, specializing in providing analytical, research and developments, consulting, training, and technical services to the polymers, plastics, and rubber related industries.
We have served the consumer, medical, chemical, and food industries for over 25 years. Our senior scientists are PhD MSc levels with industrial backgrounds holding various academic positions.
The IPRC operates in two branches, one in 'Shenkar College' (Center) and in the ‘Technion’ (North) under two specialty division, the first is thermoplastics and thermoset polymers and composites, and the second is elastomeric materials.
Amongst our services we develop polymer formulations, special compounds, production processes, testing procedures and end-products.
We specialize in commodity plastics and products, engineering polymer systems and composites, and elastomeric and rubber materials.
Our analytical services provide quality assurance, failure analyses, and de-formulation (reverse engineering).
The IPRC is committed to enhance the technological infrastructure, professional level, quality and product portfolio our customers, assisting them to improve their competitive edge in today’s global markets.
