Our EXIST research transfer project started in March 2018. As part of this project, a team was formed and feasibility and scalability of the idea behind Polytives were confirmed.

Hello world!

In March 2020, the time had finally come. Polytives was founded to bring innovative polymer additives to the market. A big step through which we almost forgot what else was going on in March 2020.

Get started 2gether

We were able to convince the jury with our innovation and received the prize for the best pitch at “get started 2gether”. In the meantime, we appreciate the TITK as an external partner.

IQ Innovation Award

We have won the cluster “Chemistry / Plastics” of the IQ Innovation Award and made a fantastic 2nd place in the overall ranking! We are very pleased about this honor!


At this year’s ThEx AWARD we were awarded 1st prize in the “Idea Creator” category. That makes us incredibly happy and proud.  The happy end of 2020!
