Formulation at CPI

CPI’s National Formulation Centre is based at Sedgefield in County Durham, located alongside CPI’s Printable Electronics and Graphene Application Centres, enabling us to provide a joined up approach to the development of next generation formulated products and their applications across markets such as healthcare and pharmaceuticals, home and personal care, industrial products, oil and gas, paints and coatings, and food and drink.

By working with a wide range of market sectors, knowledge partners and the UK’s most innovative technology companies, we are helping to meet key challenges for the formulating industries and drive cross-sector innovation and value chain synergies.


We would like to give you the opportunity to learn more about the development of CPI’s £28m National Formulation Centre, tour the state-of-the-art facilities and discuss how we can work together to drive innovation in formulation forward in the UK.
