We research on your behalf

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.

We make polymers fit for the future!

At the Fraunhofer IAP, we develop bio-based and synthetic polymers that are efficient, intelligent and sustainable -
from the laboratory to the industrial scale.

The applications are diverse: bio-based packaging, lightweight materials, phosphors for displays, truck tires with less abrasion,
biodegradable bone splints, antimicrobial contact lenses, and much more.
