"W e contacted first time Porous Materials Inc. in order to buy a Liquid Extrusion Porosimeter (LEP) and this project pointed out the concern for quality and attention to detail that the company has. The company did an excellent job and they provided reliable solutions to every issue that we faced during the customization of the instrument for our application. In our opinion it has been the knowledge and the creativity of the company that resulted in such impressive results. I strongly recommend the services of the company and I am looking forward to working with the company again in the future."
