From raw materials to adhesives, coatings, potting compounds, plastics and fiber composites
The spectrum of expertise in the area of polymeric materials ranges from development, processing and formulation to material and component characterization, covering the entire value chain from molecule to component. The starting point is molecular design and the synthesis of raw materials for adhesives, coatings and matrix resins. The focus is on reactive systems that are processed into thermoset, elastomeric or thermoplastic polymers. The institute is intensively involved in the development of new, tailor-made polymer systems, resulting in products for applications in lightweight construction, components for electrical energy storage or medical technology.
On this page, we present a selection of our main research topics.
