From Design to Production and Beyond
THE UNIQUE HIFORMER PROCESS
HiFormer® is not a product. It is a holistic system that goes beyond the standard supplier/customer relationship to create a true strategic partnership. In close collaboration, you and Clariant will work together to find the perfect mix of creative ideas, materials and production technology for your plastic product or packaging design. With HiFormer, we can offer a unique combination of chemistry, engineering and consultancy that allow top performance, flexibility and excellence for any product idea you can imagine – bringing life to plastics and bringing plastics to life.
The HiFormer approach is built on three primary elements:
1. CONVERSE -- when all stakeholders define the parameters of the project, and identify major objectives and potential limitations.
2. CO-CREATE -- the phase in which Clariant, the brand owner and the plastics processor work together to develop customized solutions to the specific needs of the application.
3. COMPLETE -- with the important decisions made, Clariant's global team goes into action, making sure that the process continues to perform, delivering long-term profitability.
Let's look at each element more closely.
