Business Segments

Analytics & Testing

We deliver results and solutions.

For new and series products or for special problems, our experts take over the preparation of a specification sheet, the selection of a customized test plan and the interpretation of the measurement results. In addition, our experts will assist you in your meetings with suppliers and customers. Thanks to our international scientific connections, we can offer the entire spectrum of test methods. Tailored to your requirements, we create the concept for a product-specific characterization and provide you with the test results including analysis.

Quality Management & Sampling Solutions

We guarantee consistent quality.

Our experts establish an incoming goods inspection tailored to your needs. This includes a specification adapted to your products and the storage of test reports and retention samples. This reduces time and costs in the event of possible complaints or damage claims. Test routines tailored to your needs ensure that you can maintain the quality of your products at a high level and guarantee it for years to come. Through professional documentation and archiving, we ensure traceability and, in the event of a problem, prompt containment of the cause.

Consulting & Funding Services

We are your partner for grant applications, patents and licenses.

The know-how of our experts covers simple innovation checks, national funding programs and international applications. If required, we provide fast and uncomplicated support in putting together a consortium for the realization of your project. Starting with technical assistance, we accompany you, depending on the service package, from the initial idea to the conception, preparation and submission of your funding application to the patent application and licensing. We are happy to take over the entire project management for you.

Training & Events

We improve your knowledge and network.

Our training and continuing education offering consists of standardized training modules in the areas of development, design, processing and purchasing of plastics, elastomers and silicones, practical on-site training and seminars specially tailored to your needs. We organize your professional events such as workshops, networking evenings or scientific conferences with top-class participants.
