Sander van Loon is the founder and CEO of VLCI (Van Loon Chemical Innovations), an independent laboratory providing innovative and practical R&D services within the formulation industry.

VLCI serves a broad range of clients from small companies to large multinationals all over the world, in a wide variety of markets: coatings, personal care, household, agricultural, EOR and polymers. Besides performing projects on customer demand, VLCI is actively pushing (new) formulation technologies in the market, for example HSP (Hansen Solubility Parameters) and HLD-NAC (Hydrophilic Lipophilic Difference – Net Average Curvature). These predictive formulation methods are utilized in combination with HT screening to practically generate and implement data, allowing R&D processes to be way more efficient.

When VLCI started in 2008, support on coating formulation was the main activity. Rapidly, more and more opportunities were explored in various industries to provide customers with formulation boosting R&D services.

It was the first laboratory offering R&D boosting services by combining applied formulation science with High Throughput (HT) screening, for both ingredient suppliers and formulators. This unique approach aims to move the formulation industry to a higher level, creating flexibility, predictability, new insights/products and efficiency.

Sander always had the dream to start his own lab, providing companies with consultancy and practical support on chemical related developments. After obtaining his MSc degree in Organic Chemistry at the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam in 2001, he started his career at PPG Protective & Marine Coatings. For 7 years, he was actively scouting for innovative technologies and finding ways to implement them into new products. Experiencing the beauty and the challenges of formulations, his plan to build his own laboratory became more concrete.
