Our mission: fibre-based solutions for tomorrow's products

We were set up as a foundation in 1951 and assist companies in all sectors with the development and use of modern fibre-based solutions in the areas of research, consultancy, testing and training. Our competences focuse on 

Fibres & Composites: We develop specialty papers and fibre composites, semi-finished paper products and bio-composites for new markets.

Packaging & Conformity: We develop coated barriers, packaging with new functions and contact-free paper and board converting processes.

Print & Functional Surfaces: We are your partner in the area of functionalizing web-type materials, optimizing printability and runnabilty as well as evaluating surfaces.

Smart Services & Products: Our sensors and measurement solutions facilitate more efficient process management and assure the quality of products.

Material Testing & Analytics: We analyze and evaluate paper, board, cartonboard, corrugated board, nonwovens, composites, packaging, paper converting and print products, dispersions, emulsions, pigments, water, recovered paper and residues.

In Heidenau near Dresden we are operating a modern pilot plant facilities for innovative paper and wet-laid nonwoven developments and also offer modern equipped analytical laboratories.

Our training programme offers the latest technological knowledge about paper production, converting and new applications of paper.

To develop efficient solutions for today’s complex challenges, we perform extensive research projects and co-operate with universities, colleges, research institutes, associations and companies.
