Chemical Toll Blending
Toll blending or contract blending / chemical toll manufacturing as it is sometimes referred to is a manufacturing service often offered within the chemical manufacturing industry.
Toll blending refers to the production of chemical products which is called upon by a third party who often do not have the equipment, resources, or technical know-how to complete in-house.
It is common for companies to use toll blending services, these companies range from brand owners, retailers and distributors.
The common approach to toll blending is that a third party will contact the chemical toll manufacturing company and both parties will sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement). The third party will then provide information on the product they would like the toll blender to produce, this information is usually an outline of:
- What the product is
- How it should perform
- Details of the actual formulation
- Method of manufacture
- Information on the proposed packaging
