Plastics technology: Biomaterial meets processing technology
In addition to the development of new biobased and bioinspired materials, the question of their compatibility with traditional material processing techniques for an industrial application arises.
Success factor processability
Initial fundamental investigations of the material processing of our new innovative materials are an integral part of our development work. Processing at very small and small scale serves primarily to advance the development of new bio-based materials not only by application and properties, but also from the aspect of processability.
Accompanying studies on material processing provide customers and partners with basic information for the future processing of newly developed biobased and bioinspired materials.
These biobased materials can be processed in scales ranging from several grams to low kilogram quantities with industry-oriented machines.
Standard forming processes such as extrusion, injection molding, and thermal forming are available.
Analysis of newly developed materials
In addition to the evaluation of processing parameters, a broad method platform of standardized test procedures and analysis of the newly developed materials is available.
