Applied basic research and contract research in the sector of pastics and rubber DE-PS-90
Applied basic research and contract research in the sector of pastics and rubber
The KTP Kunststofftechnik Paderborn at the University of Paderborn focuses on the research and development of latest polymers, which are essential in modern engineering. Especially the procedural descriptions and analyses of polymer engineering processes are foundations for all developments. The KTP stands for thirty years of education and research and development of manufacturing processes in the field of polymers and rubbers. The expertise encompasses:
- the intensive co-operation with regional, national and international industrial companies and
- A main characteristic of the KTP is the close contact to the regional, national and international industry.

KTP does not limit its research tasks to basic university research, but also concentrates on demand driven contract research for partners from industry.

On the one hand KTP features the optimal adaption of processing performances to the technical requirements. KTP has developed application-oriented simulation tools for all fields of polymer processing. These software tools help to find solutions for problems quickly and allow higher process transparency. KTP offers on the other hand a broad variety of services in their local test bed infrastructure.

The main fields of activities besides joining, processing concepts and rheology are the below described competence fields:

- injection moulding focussing
- Calculation of plasticizing units
- Back flow valve (mould closing behaviour and wear behaviour)
- Extra procedures (e.g. gas injection technique, 2K)

- extrusion focussing
- Single and twin screw extrusion
- Gear pumps
- Extrusion of rubbers
- Film extrusion

KTP highlights its simulation programmes for single screw, twin screw and rubber extruders. These programmes achieve a fast and reliable extruder design. KTP also focuses on the optimization of gear pumps for extrusion applications and for extra-applications within the rubber processing.
