Materials Sciences for health & wellbeing
Our Materials Sciences competences also make a major contribution to nutrition, health, medicine and biotechnology. For example, they helped create our Akulon? polymer, used in packaging to significantly extend food’s shelf life and reduce food waste – a defining challenge for society.
Meanwhile in the Biomedical field, our medical-grade Dyneema Purity? fiber has the potential to aid in therapeutic repairs that are more comfortable, last longer and create stronger mechanical performance – all of which contributes to improved quality of life.
Materials Sciences: Knowledge centers
Our key RT&D centers in the Materials Sciences field of expertise are located in Geleen, (the Netherlands), and Shanghai (China).
