Research and Development – Motor for Innovation

To find new ideas and applications and to develop new compounds and production procedures – all these are tasks of the RKW development engineers. The professional skills of experienced professionals and the creativity of young talented engineers extraordinarily complement in a team that also readily supports RKW customers in developing their own products.

The Result: Custom-fit Products

In an active dialog with business partners, RKW develops products from filmsnonwovens, and 
compounds
 made of the raw materials polyethylene and polypropylene. These can be used across markets – from multifunctional and reliable hygiene products through highly strainable and long-living farming products to packaging films that are approved by food regulatory authorities.

The range of development activities and the production know-how form a successful combination. Thus RKW is one of the technology leaders in the field of films and nonwovens.

Alignment with Multiple Requirements

To be able to cope with future challenges, a narrow exchange with partners from various fields is required. So the R&D employees cooperate intensively with customers, suppliers, universities, and the colleagues within the RKW Group. One big advantage: all the production processes can be reproduced in small scale in our own technical facilities.
