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.

Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP

Much more than plastics!

Biobased carbon fibers for light-weight cars, organic light-emitting diodes for flexible displays or artificial corneas for eye implants – for more than 25 years the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP in Potsdam-Golm has been developing polymers. Our materials and methods cover the entire range of polymer applications. We also create conditions which ensure that the developed methods not only work on a laboratory scale, but also under production conditions.
