The Center for Analysis and Testing of Plastics (KAP) offers targeted problem solutions from a single source. Using analytical methods, we obtain information from a plastic product about the material used, the quality of processing and the operating stresses endured. Suitable tests can be used to determine material parameters for product and process development. This serves to ensure product quality and safety in every respect. The center is embedded in the Institute of Plastics Processing, which ensures a direct exchange with the extensive knowledge and long-standing experience in materials engineering, design and processing at the highest level.
