About us

We achieve the level of ingenuity required for this by implementing an interdisciplinary approach, fusing together the fields of raw materials, construction and processing. In doing so we approach product development with plastics in a holistic way. Our expertise in the fields of chemistry and analytics, process engineering and structural mechanics blends very well with the surface structuring and functionalisation expertise of the FHNW Institute of Polymer Nanotechnology.
