R&D internship / graduation project

SABA develops and produces high-quality, innovative adhesives and sealants for construction and industry. In this, SABA has over 80 years of knowledge and experience. In that time, SABA developed from a small, traditional company into a leading world-class producer. All products are produced and developed in Dinxperlo, the Netherlands.

Research & Development

Several internships are usually available at Saba's R&D departments. Doing an internship at SABA means working (together) in a pleasant, international environment. With approximately 150 employees worldwide, our organisation is spreading its wings, but still offers the personal atmosphere of a real family business. 

Internship assignments are regularly formulated from the R&D departments of both business units: FBA and IA&S. 

The R&D department of business unit FBA develops adhesives for foam applications. Here, you can think of mattresses or other furniture. A lot of work is done in this department to develop water-based adhesives, but also hotmelt adhesives.

The R&D department of business unit IA&S develops sealants and adhesives for, among others, the construction and transport market, for example adhesives in buses and trains. Many developments are made on adhesives based on silane-terminated polymers and 2-component polysulphide systems.

The assignment

Generally, internship assignments are for students studying chemistry or chemical engineering.

Internship assignments at Saba are very diverse. For example, there may be assignments in the field of chemical analysis (HPLC, (HS) GC, FTIR); the assignment may also be part of the development of new adhesives, sealants and primers (formulation work, e.g. tests to build up fundamental knowledge of both our raw materials and our end products); the assignment may also be application-oriented (e.g. creep and relaxation tests and adhesion tests on new substrates).
