Established in 1919, RAPRA is – and always has been – about promoting and assisting the research into and development of innovative uses for polymers.

This is done so that ultimately members can commercially exploit the results.


If, in the course of your business, you are currently using, or wish to use polymers in any way, RAPRA can help. Our services and members benefit packages have evolved through almost 100 years of experience to effectively address urgent short term support needs and the on-going improvement of R&D capabilities.


As a not-for-profit organisation, RAPRA has a duty and responsibility written into its constitution, to provide independent and impartial services to help member companies.


Together with its consortium partners, Rapra Limited is very pleased to be able to participate and contribute in the REACH for Polymers project in order to assist the European Polymer Industry.
