VerDiOr- Development of a process for production of directly extruded fiber reinforced thermoplastic composite materials in preindustrial environment having options for energy savings

Folienwerk Wolfen GmbH is carrying out a ZIM cooperation project, supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. Partner of the research project is the Technical University Ilmenau. The project is entitled „ Development of a process for production of directly extruded fiber reinforced thermoplastic composite materials in preindustrial environment having options for energy savings”. The production of fiber reinforced thermoplastic composite materials is cost-intensive, due to process steps with high energy consumption. Based on former research results from the Technical University Ilmenau, the project partners are planning to investigate and develop process improvements, as well as new process techniques for the manufacture of fiber reinforced thermoplastic composite materials. At the end of the project, a scale-up from lab scale to preindustrial process conditions should be possible. Duration of the project: January 1st, 2021, to December 31st, 2022.

ERDF supports again a research project of our company.

Research project of our company is supported continuously by grants from the ERDF, the European Regional Development Fund. In the period from 1. July 2019 to 31. March 2022, we are carrying out a research project entitled "Development of novel laminating films for glass laminates with special optical, thermal and mechanical properties, and research on suitable, selective test methods for demanding environmental conditions". The Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems IMWS, with which we have a long-standing research co-operation, is again on board as a co-operation partner. The Otto von Guericke University of Magdeburg (OvGU) has won as a new project partner for the project. The main research topics in the project focus on the targeted influences of optical effects, investigations into weathering resistance as well as developments for possible weight reductions of lamination films, which results in the final product.
