For clients

We research on your behalf - Turning your ideas into products

The Fraunhofer IAP offers a broad range of research in polymers. We work on biobased and synthetic polymers that meet the growing demands of our partners.The end products are becoming more durable and stable, more acid and heat resistant, easier to care for, healthier, more environmentally-friendly, more cost-effective ... as well as easier and more energy efficient to manufacture.

We develop innovative and sustainable materials, processes and products that are specifically tailored to the application’s requirements. We also create conditions which ensure that the developed methods not only work on a laboratory scale, but also under production conditions.

The scientific knowledge and practical experience of our staff guarantee fast implementation from concept to market. Take advantage of our expertise which extends throughout the entire range of polymer applications!
