Halbzeug - Granulat 3

Research results from the necessity to resolve problems or to develop new innovative products pr processes.
This requires a thorough analysis of the problem at hand and a great deal of competence with regard to the knowledge of materials and processing technology know-how.
The PolyRegion already hosts the kind of R&D facilities needed to carry out successful research projects.

The following institutions are already at home in the PolyRegion


  • Department für Polymer Technology & Science at Montanuniversität in Leoben ( Christian Doppler Labors)
  • JUB TRC d.o.o., Dol pri Ljubljani
  • PoliMat - Centre of Excellence - Polymer Materials and Technologies
  • Polymer Competence Center Leoben GmbH (PCCL)K1-Center in Comet Program
  • Tecos, Celje ( Slowenian Slovenian Tool and Die Development Centre)
  • Tehnološki center POLI-EKO, Celje
  • TU Graz with basic research in Polymerchemistry
  • VSTP, Slovenj Gradec (Technical Polymer College)
  • W3C Wood Carinthian Competence Center - Kompetenzzentrum Holz GmbH, St. Veit an der Glan
  • 4a technology GmbH, Traboch
  • National Institute of Chemistry Slovenia
  • University of Ljubljana
  • University of Maribor

The PolyRegion offers laboratories with the necessary extensive equipment required by a successful research infrastructure; they range from facilities for chemical analysis and material testing to proprietary polymer processing facilities and supplement the broad bandwidth of research areas listed here as examples:

  • Polymers in medical technology,
  • Renewable resources, degradation and stabilization
  • Coatings and adhesives Polymers in solar technology
  • Polymers in the paper industry,
  • Nano fillers
  • Manufacturing process simulation
  • Expansion injection molding, co-extrusion,
  • Multi-layer films

The individual R&D institutions are represented in the competence map under the heading "Research". The detailed view of each institution shows the respective core competencies and also includes a link to the corresponding homepage
