Objective of the Dr. Robert-Murjahn-Institute
The Dr. Robert-Murjahn-Institute (RMI) performs scientific studies in the fields of coating materials, facade systems, thermal insulation and building protection and investigates aspects of health and the environment. The objective of the RMI is to scientifically solve topical problems in its working field for the benefit of its clients. Furthermore, the RMI will support overarching interests in the industrial sector through public relations and cooperation with public bodies.

The RMI was founded in 2005. Originating from the Deutsche Amphibolin-Werke, the experience at the RMI is fostered by direct contact with development and production units as well as with applicators and consumers.

It was named in honour to Dr. Robert Murjahn. He was a chemist wholeheartedly and has produced many pioneering innovations. These include the emulsion paint technology, which he developed in 1936 and which is today state of the art throughout the world. We feel committed to his pioneering spirit.
