TFI - Textile and Flooring Institute at RWTH Aachen University
The TFI's research in the field of flooring encompasses the entire life cycle of coatings, from the use of raw materials in production, marketing, installation, and use, to their later disposal.
In addition to creating products designed to meet consumer needs, the TFI also focuses on the permanent optimization of the processes, regarding production speed, flexbility, and accuracy.
Quality, ecology, economy, and interaction all play a primary role as well. Researchers and engineers from textiles, mechanical engineering, chemistry, computer science, ecology, and ecomoy all work at the TFI.
