The expanded Technology Application Network China (TANC) at the Jinqiao site in Shanghai’s Pudong district is the first application laboratory in China that Merck has launched to deliver customised services for its products. 

This collaboration began in 1998 with the opening of the first site at Fudan University in Shanghai, based on the example of the Merck Customer Support Center. The TANC initially focused on print applications, with three expansions over the years leading to additional application fields – ranging from plastics, coating, and cosmetic applications, to dispersion paints and powder coating technologies, to quality control and cosmetic testing. China is one of the fastest-growing markets for Merck’s pigments and cosmetics businesses. Many of China’s most popular and best-known brand manufacturers rely on pigments and functional materials from Merck and tap into the TANC when developing new products.
