PTG/e can be an extension of your in-house R&D. Whether it is contract research or simply the analysis of a material, you can count on us for professional support. We take a pragmatic approach, which translates into short communication lines internally and regular contact between our researchers and the customer. In this way we can monitor project progress and steer the process as needed.
Our services include organising postdoc-level open courses. And thanks to our large network of lecturers, we are also able to offer (in-house) courses tailored to your specific needs.
Research & innovation

PTG/e is fully equipped to take on a variety of tasks.
Also for shorter term projects PTG/e is your partner.
Comparison of raw materials, material identification or a quick literature scan – these are just a few of the services that PTG/e can perform for you.
With access to a wide network of (own) experts in many different areas, PTG/e is excellently placed to help you expand your knowledge of polymers. We are organizing customized company specific courses, as well as open PTN courses.

Remeltable concrete, an industrial revolution!
PTG/e cooperated with Shell in the development of sulfur concrete which is now commercialized by the Belgian concrete manufacturer De Bonte for the production of ‘green’ railway sleepers.
Further details on this 100% circular concrete can be found on the website of De Bonte.
