Project Description

The growth of microorganisms has been investigated under static and dynamic conditions. The already constructed moisture control system has been tested on real facades. Innovations include the creation of a low thermal conductivity insulation material. Different halogen-free flame retardants have been tested successfully in polymer foams.
