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. Our goal, in collaboration with our industry partners, is to find new applications for hybrid (bio) fiber composites and to develop future-oriented products and technologies.
Together with the Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts, we offer you a wide range of manufacturing processes and investigation methods in the areas of plastics technology and bio-composites. HOFZET partners are predominantly companies from the automotive, construction, furniture and environmental industries. Should you have any questions regarding fiber technology, please do not hesitate to contact us.
