For clients

We research on your behalf

The Fraunhofer IAP conducts a wide range of research and provides a variety of services that are geared towards the needs and requirements of its industry partners. Our customers often require "tailor-made" solutions for their products and production processes.

We have been working on biobased and synthetic polymers that meet the growing demands of our partners. They need the end products to be, for example, more durable, more acid and heat resistant, more stable, easier to care for, healthier, more environmentally-friendly, more cost-effective ... and for these products to become easier and more energy efficient to manufacture.

The Fraunhofer IAP develops 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!
