Customer Services

Contact the Solution Squad. We will conduct a line audit to predict savings, recommend changeover requirements, examine your parts and specs, recommend exact parameters for your application, and produce test parts for evaluation.

If CPI meets your test requirements, we will set up a production trial in your facility and will work closely with your team to achieve your production specifications.

Our Solution Squad will then fully support your transition to full scale production, optimizing your process. And we will be with you for the long term.


Off the shelf solutions letting you down? We’re here to help. CPI has a history of developing customized chemistry to solve specific customer problems.


Full analytical and R&D laboratories to get you the answers you need, root cause analysis to direct your troubleshooting efforts, and new solutions to drive conspicuous improvement.


Trials don’t have to kill your productivity. We can run offline trials at your location using our spray chambers, or get your production line in and out of trial and back up and running before you can say, “Impressive!” Our Solution Squad has the tools and know how to get you answers you need without the typical hassles.

Launch Support

The Solution Squad supports line clean out, launch, and debug to ensure you never miss a beat. We quickly dial in your line performance and train your operators so that you achieve your performance and quality KPI’s. We stay until your process is stable and your team is confident.

Continuous Improvement

We love this stuff! Our chemistry geeks stay engaged with your team, to keep you on the cutting edge. Whether it’s an onsite line audit, troubleshooting call, or full-blown process improvement collaboration, our Solution Squad is committed to keeping your process optimized and you looking good.
