The operation of high power high brightness accelerators requires huge efforts for beam cleaning and machine protection. Within the WP 8 (ColMat)of the EU research framework EuCARD we investigate new materials and methods for beam collimation and machine protection. TWe present an overview of these activities at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerioneforschung in Darmstadt. Simulations of accidental beam losses in LHC and SIS100 have been performed. Scenarios for halo collimation of heavy ions and protons in SIS100 routine operation have been investigated. A prototype of a cryogenic collimator for charge exchange losses during intermediate charge state heavy ion operation in SIS100 has been build and tested with beam. Several candidates of advances composite materials for collimation system upgrades of present and construction of future high power accelerators have been irradiated and their properties are being characterized. Most deliverables and milestones of the R&D programm have already been reached before the end of the funding period. A summary of the obtained results will be presented.
