Organization Profile

The Mississippi Polymer Institute (MPI) is a non-profit industrial outreach organization at The University of Southern Mississippi. Our problem-solving capabilities apply to needs at all business stages, from product conceptualization to post-commercialization. We have highly trained staff that provide services such as polymer synthesis, resin compounding and injection molding, analytical and physical testing (ISO 17025 accredited test laboratory through A2LA – Scope of Accreditation #3476.01, and workforce development for advanced materials and processes. We have been using these capabilities to solve manufacturing problems for clients around the globe since 1993.

MPI’s new focus areas include graphene (material validation and application evaluation), advanced clean energy materials (materials & product evaluation and working demonstrations), and sustainable materials (material & product certification and composability).
