Bundled competence from classic materials to composite materials and other high-tech materials under a single roof

Materials often are the key to innovation. About two thirds of all new products are based on new materials or processes. Under the umbrella of the IMPE, seven laboratories are working together on development, production and testing of high-tech materials and composites in an interdisciplinary manner. The foundation is a broad know-how in all classical material groups and an excellent research equipment.

  • Functional polymers and polymer blends
  • Adhesives
  • Polymer-ceramic-hybrid materials
  • High performance ceramics
  • Fiber-reinforced materials (advanced carbon composites)
  • Metallic high temperature materials
  • Catalyst systems
  • Smart materials
  • Fatigue of materials and damage analysis
