The main activities of the laboratory include basic, applied and other R&D work connected with the following fields: polymeric materials used in different industrial application; special attention is given to the study of surface and structural parameters of fibres/foils/films, correlations between the surface/structural parameters and its reactivity/interaction capacity and optimization and development of new, ecologically friendly processes.
LCPP is collaborating on national and international scientific and educational level within several organizations.
LCPP is a member of EPNOE - European Network of Excellence for polysaccharide, POLIMAT – Centre of Excellence Polymer Materials and Technologies, AUTEX - Association of Universities for Textile, EURATEX - European Technology Platform for the Future of Textiles and Clothing …
Our team is active in common regional research activities among neighboring Universities of the Styria region (University of Technology Graz, Karl Franzens University of Graz, Montanuniversität Leoben) on the field of Functional Polysaccharide Materials development. Since this research is highly interdisciplinary, most of the activities in this field are performed in close cooperation with our national and international partners as shown:
