#1-0 How do I get material samples for trials?
Please contact us for material samples. You may simply order the material of your choice, or we review your target applications and requirements to choose the right material grade(s). firstname.lastname@example.org
#1-1 What are the charges and payment terms for material samples?
Material samples are charged with actual costs. Biopolymer and Durable Compounds are costly; our customers have long lead-times from first sampling into SOP. With several requests daily, we need to charge samples at cost levels (without profit). Samples have to be paid (EFT) prior to dispatch in all regions.
#1-2 What are typical batch sizes for material samples?
Every manufacturer shall have sufficient material to be able to understand a very new material, trial and optimise process settings. Getting and using free capacities to run trials is never easy; trials shall be completed successfully. We recommend at least 40 kg for injection molding trials and 80 kg for extrusion, blow molding and film-blown trials. Depending on part and equipment size, batch sizes for material samples might have to be adapted.
#1-3 Does nature2need provide Process Guides?
Yes, we support you with Process Guides for every material group. In any case, you may reach out to our Engineering team to clarify open questions. email@example.com
