Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability LBF
Fraunhofer LBF is a research institute within the Fraunhofer Society in Germany and we offer our expertise in polymer chemistry, polymer processing and polymer technology as well as structural durability, system reliability. We cover the entire plastics value cycle from synthesis, formulation and additivation over chemical, physical and mechanical characterisation, processing, components design and testing up until re- or upcycling.
Our projects revolve around thermoplasts, duromers, elastomers and composite with special attention to sustainable and circular solutions.
