Polymer Foams

Since November 2019, M. Sc. Justus Kuhnigk is employed as scientific staff at the Department of Polymer Engineering in the polymeric foam workgroup. As part of his scientific work, he is engaged in the development of lightweight semi-finished products made of physically foamed wood plastic composites (WPC).

Between 2013 and 2016 Justus Kuhnigk studied chemistry at the Justus-Liebig-University Gießen. After completing two research internships in England and Italy, he completed the master’s program in “Polymer Science” at the University of Bayreuth. He successfully completed his studies in October 2019 with the Master’s thesis on “Influence of molecular weight and distribution on the foaming process and the gas sorption behavior of engineering thermoplastics”.
