Toll Blending is the same as Toll Mixing which is simply where a fee or “Toll” is paid for Chemical Blending or Chemical Mixing Services
. We also call this Contract Mixing!
Customers use our facilities when they do not have the capability to perform mixing and blending themselves.
The reasons may be one of those listed below…
Trial and Pre-Production Chemical Mixing
Sometimes a customer may want to produce a pre-production batch for trial purposes. Rather than investing hundreds of thousands of pounds in a mixing and blending facility, first they need to prove that they can sell their product. Our toll blending solution meets these requirements. We produce and package the materials into the clients own packaging right here on site in Sheffield. The product is shipped to the customer’s facility or directly to their customer
All of our processes are covered by our ISO9001 and 140001 accreditations. To safeguard our client’s intellectual property we put Non-Disclosure Agreements in place.
Once the product is proven in the market the client may invest in their own production. Sometimes, however, they stay with us as their provider of Toll Blending Services.
Ad-Hoc Chemical Blending Requirements
Some clients come to us when they have an operational challenge with their own chemical blending operations. This could be that they received an order and do not have the capacity on their own plant. It can also be that they have a plant outage or maintenance so we step in to help them bridge the gap.
We respond quickly and are flexible in our approach. We offer a quick turnaround and have our own on-site sampling and testing facility
. There are no delays waiting for 3rd party testing.
We work with industrial end users where they require a specific blend of chemicals for a process. This may not be commercially available in the marketplace in the volumes or at the price that works for them. In these cases, batches of mixed chemicals are produced on a call off basis. We hold a base level of stock and replenish this as demand dictates. The client arranges for collection of material to suit their own manufacturing requirements.
All of our toll blending production is sampled and tested prior to despatch and each batch is shipped with a Certificate of Conformity. Material that is held in stock is checked regularly to ensure that it is in spec when required.
Third Party Blending
Some clients just want to use a third party for their mixing and blending services. They do not have a mixing and blending facility and have no plans to install one. They use our toll blending as an extension of their own capabilities. By doing so, they remain flexible and avoid the costs of capital investment and the maintenance of a significant asset. The costs of the staff required to operate a mixing plant and sampling and testing lab are also avoided.
So, as you can see there are potentially many various reasons why our customers chose to work with us!
We welcome enquiries of any size. We have a wide range of mixing tanks and a flexible approach. Sometimes we find the flexible approach to be more important than the mixing tanks!
