Knowledge on polymeric materials covers a wide area, from hard plastics via porous membranes to soft hydrogels. The properties and solubility of polymers govern the final texture and function of the product. New functional properties can be added to the material by coating or incorporation of active groups, e.g. antibacterial, self-cleaning or responsive properties to the surrounding conditions. The Danish Technological Institute provides counselling services and develops new polymeric matrices with functional properties for application in the medico trade, for the manufacturing industry and for high-tech products.
