Application-oriented research into technical polymers for practical implementation is the core competence of the Polymer Engineering Department. Through our participation in Fraunhofer alliances and innovation clusters, our excellent international contacts and our collaboration with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology KIT, we are able to offer our partners system solutions from one provider: from polymer synthesis, materials engineering, polymer processing, component development and production through to recycling.

Compounding and extrusion
The main focus of this research group is process and material development. In many cases these elements have equal importance in our work. We also develop individual sub-steps if requested.
