Quality­ Management

Offering products with a consistently high quality is one of our core principles. At Norac Additives, we take our quality management very seriously. At our production site in Helena, AR, we operate a fully-equipped laboratory to monitor the quality of raw materials as well as our products throughout all steps of production. Different wet-chemical and physical analytics are carried out. Furthermore, the laboratory is equipped with a broad range of instrumental analytics. 

These include techniques such as X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy to analyze the elemental composition of the sample material, as well as near-infrared spectroscopy used for raw material identification and determination of product-specific parameters. The particle size of our products is analyzed through laser diffraction analysis. 

In 2021, Norac Additives joined RSPO and is now offering certified RSPO Mass Balance (MB) products. For more details, please contact us. Check our progress at!

Research &­ Development

Research and development are also part of our core principles at Norac Additives. It is our objective to create individual technical solutions for our customers.

At our site in Ambler, PA we operate a specialized application technology laboratory. Currently, the focus is put on PVC applications but we strive to expand our activities towards polyolefins in the long term.

With various special testing devices we are well equipped to improve our existing product range and to develop new grades to meet our customers' needs. The products are tested by application of various instrumental analytics such as Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, and Datacolor color and haze measurements. For application engineering, our laboratory equipment includes the following techniques:

  • Brabender mixing bowls for rheology analysis
  • Brabender single and twin screw extruders
  • Laboratory two roll mill
  • QUV accelerated weathering apparatus
