The goal of the Application Center HOFZET® is to work in collaboration with our partners from the automotive, construction, furniture and environmental industries in order to find new applications for hybrid (bio) fiber composite materials and to develop future-oriented products and technologies. To this end, we conduct research in the fields of hybrid fiber composite materials with thermoplastic and thermoset matrix, additive manufacturing, the production and application of technical textiles and the recycling of polymeric composites.
We concentrate in particular on the higher-value usage of natural fibers and derivatives for technical applications – from fiber extraction through to product and process development. Through the close cooperation with the Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts, we are able to offer a wide range of manufacturing processes and investigation methods in the areas of plastics technology and bio-composites.
Should you have any questions regarding fiber technology, please do not hesitate to contact us.
