Research Projects

In recent years, we have participated in numerous national and international development projects. We are also involved in the development of green materials for applications in the automotive industry, such as NaturTruck, where we contribute to the production of biopolymers made from renewable sources.


Research Development Group 

11 researchers in the research development group are involved in the development of multi-component (2K) polymer substitutes for classic metal components. By using the highest quality polymer materials, we offer lightweight design solutions for applications in the automotive and other industries. We guarantee required product functionality at reduced manufacturing costs and with lower material and energy consumption.


Research Development Projects

We are currently participating in the following national and international research projects: E! NGMOLDING, E! EPS, E! DBS, Eurostars! A++SILENCER, FP6, Pro4Plast, E! NG EPS, E! PolySocket, FP7, NaturTruck, Horizon 2020 and PolyHalter.


Development Partners

We carry our research development projects in cooperation with scientific and research institutions in Slovenia and abroad, these include: Jožef Stefan Institute, National Institute of Chemistry Slovenia, Montanuniversität Leoben, Institut für Kunststoffverarbeitung, TECOS – Slovenian Tool and Die Development Centre and the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Ljubljana.

The PolyHalter project is financed through the Horizon 2020 EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, SME Instrument (Phase 2) with a total value of 724,550 Euro including 507,185 Euro in obtained co-financing from the European Commission. The project was initiated on 1 June 2015 and is expected to last for approximately 18 months.
