Color and Polymer research center of AUT was established in 2003 aiming to align industry and university in the field of color and polymer. After about two decades since the start of its activity, color and polymer research center of AUT, as a competent authority, have currently gained trust of industrialists and activists in its filed; while taking big and effective steps in raising the country’s scientific and industrial level.  Educating expert workforce in MSc, PhD and post-doctoral degrees, conducting cutting-edge research projects, collaborating with first-rate foreign and domestic universities and research centers, offering laboratory and quality control services, conducting international  workshops and  conferences , producing technical science and elimination of  specialty barriers in production and operational processes, conducting the country’s required industrial projects, and collaboration with organization and production companies are among the main activities of this research center. With 12 years of experience, this center is the specialized reference of road-marking paints in the country.
