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.
