From monomers to tailor-made components
The Fraunhofer Pilot Plant Center for Polymer Synthesis and Processing PAZ in Schkopau is a joint initiative of the Fraunhofer Institutes for Applied Polymer Research IAP in Potsdam-Golm and for Microstructures of Materials and Systems IMWS in Halle. We focus our efforts on scaling-up polymer synthesis and processing methods.
Both its technical capabilities and the bundling of competencies in both fields constitute the Pilot Plant center's unique selling point on the R&D market. At the Fraunhofer PAZ, new products and innovative technologies are developed along the entire value chain – from monomers, polymer synthesis and polymer processing, to testing made-to-measure components. Here, polymer synthesis and processing are closely intertwined.
With this focus on a near-industrial scale, we support our clients effectively in the implementation of research results into innovative products and processes.
